What Are Offline Web Pages?


There are times when you find an interesting article online that you want to read later, but you’re not sure if you will have an Internet connection available. Instead of bookmarking the item, save it to a file on your computer and read it offline, without the Internet.

Saving Web Pages Offline

  • To save a Web page from Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer, click "Control-S” to get a “Save as” menu to pop up. From there you can save as “Web Page Complete” or “Web Page HTML Only.” You can also click the Customize Chrome button and select “Save Page as," or in Firefox, click the “File” menu and choose “Save Page As.”

Save Web Page as Menu

  • From the "Save Page as" Menu, you can either save the page as a “Web Page Complete” or “Save as HTML Only.” Saving the page as ”Web Page Complete” retains all the formatting of the original article in its online state, with graphics intact. If you are just interested in reading the text and don’t care about any pictures that come with the article, select “Save as HTML Only,” and you will get the same content of the article but in a bare bones HTML format without pictures. You can also choose to save the file as a text file, which will not keep any of the HTML formatting, links or images, but will save the text on the Web page.
