is an extension available for
, dedicated to those who want to archive web pages and general bits and pieces of the internet. It’s an extension that aims to make saving web pages easy, while also working to keep their formatting intact, without any display issues. This means that the HTML living underneath your pretty webpage is compiled and preserved in its original form.
Well, let’s say you want to keep coming back to a certain webpage, whether because it’s tied to a memory of yours or because it has some information you’d like to recheck every once in a while. What happens if the website hosting your page is taken out of commission?
If you were prepared for this and saw it coming, then you most likely tried to save it somehow. This is a scenario in which SingleFile could come in-handy. It’s easy to use, doesn’t require you to know too many things about computers and it’s also fast and straightforward.
One great thing about this application is that instead of saving multiple files and images for one archived webpage, it compiles all that information into only one HTML file. Each saved website means one and only one HTML file containing all the data. There will simply be one file corresponding to each archived webpage, named accordingly and accessible from wherever you decided to establish your web archive.
SingleFIle is an extension worth getting, especially if you’re one of those people who wished for a better way to archive webpages, without having to deal with tons of files and useless other processes. It’s simple to use and fast. It’s intuitive and definitely worth a try, if not keeping. You have nothing to lose.
