How to convert a web page to PDF

Seen a web site or a web page that you want to save in your local drive but don’t want to save it as html with all those external images? You can save it to a doc file but it would be much cooler to save it into PDF.


Web2PDF is a free online service that does only one thing. It will convert a page off the web into PDF format for you. You don’t have to sign up or anything, just enter the address of the page you want converted and wait for it while it does its thing. Conversion takes about a couple of minutes and you will be given a link where you can download your PDF.

They also have a bookmarklet for Firefox users who doesn’t want to visit the site to do their conversion. Only thing I would like to see is a way to select elements in the screen to convert so I won’t have to see ads and comments but I guess that would defeat its simplistic approach.
