WHILE browsing the Internet you often come across content that you would like to store for later review, but if you use the “Save As” option that most browsers come with, you are likely to end up with an unwieldy collection of files or more content than you needed, depending on the browser and method used to save the page. Even if it is just a paragraph that you want to print, you might end up downloading lot of unnecessary images and other data.
If you are using Google Chrome, you can have access to a number of extensions that will allow you to edit the pages before saving or printing and do much else.
This extension can prove to be incredibly handy if you tend to save lot of pages from the web. Once you install the extension, you will have the Cleansave icon in the list of menu items on Google Chrome. An editor capable of changing font size, removing images and adding notes will appear as soon as you click on the Cleansave icon. You can even use the tool to delete images and paragraphs. Once you have the material ready in a format that is as per your requirements you can save it as PDF, email it or send it to Google Docs or Dropbox.
CleanPrint, another extension for Google Chrome, enables you to save paper, ink and money when printing from the web. You can use it to edit content before saving articles to Print, PDF, Google Docs, Google Drive or Dropbox. After you install this extension, you will find a new icon placed in the address bar of your browser. In order to use CleanPrint, all you need to do is activate the extension on the desired page by clicking on the icon. All the options to remove images, reduce or increase font size, and utilise less printer ink are present in the extension’s interface.
