User Case


I'm aiming to preserve a webpage as a PDF file without altering its appearance or structure. Many tools tend to modify the layout or format, but I need to print the webpage exactly as it appears in the web browser, maintaining all static elements intact, with no adjustments to style or alignment.

Saving a web page as a PDF offers several advantages. For example, after you save a webpage to a local place, you can access it offline. This is quite helpful if you want to read or refer to the content on a webpage and there is no network. Also, when you have a PDF of a webpage, you can leave notes on some content that you want to highlight.

Besides, the web pages may be changed over time. If you have a copy of the old version on your computer, you can still access the previous content exactly. What’s more, you can archive the downloaded web pages in terms of your preferences on your computer such as archiving by dates.
