Don’t Lose Valuable Online Content: Convert Web Pages to PDFs.

Ever clicked on a bookmark just to be disappointed by a deleted web page? Websites get deleted every day. To save valuable information you’ve discovered online, create a PDF and save it locally. Then, you can access it without a web connection.

Creating a PDF is easier than copy and pasting content into a Word document, and unlike screen capturing, a pdf allows you to save more than just what appears on your computer screen. You can select text within the document and view higher quality photos.

Try one of the browser tools or the online converter below to begin creating PDFs of valuable online content:

Chrome’s Built-in Feature

Creating PDFs is a built-in feature of the web browser Chrome, so if you already use Chrome it is very easy to do…two steps kind of easy to do.

  1. Click on the wrench icon in the upper right corner of your browser or right click your mouse anywhere on the web page. In the menu that appears, click Print.
  2. A window will pop up in your browser. Under Destination, choose Save as PDF. Select your settings and click Save.

Firefox’s Print Pages to PDF Add-On

Compared to other web browsers, Firefox is famous for its vast number of add-ons. You cannot create PDFs without installing an add-on in Firefox, but Print pages to PDF more than compensates for that feature.

This highly customizable add-on can be downloaded Here. Click on the Add to Firefox button, click Install Now in the pop-up window and restart Firefox.

After the add-on is installed, go to Tools in your menu bar, hover over Print pages to PDF and select Preferences. From there, you can determine the coloring, layout and other settings of your PDF. The chart below shows the size equivalencies of the Paper format option under Sizes and Margins.

Go to the Print Pages to PDF Homepage to learn more about creating PDFs in Firefox.
