How to Save a Webpage to a Single HTML File

Normally when you save a webpage for future references using the built-in ‘Save As’ option of your browsers, it will save all files (images, CSS, scripts, etc…) in a separate folder along with the html file. Of course, it is necessary to fully reproduce the web page, but what about if the number of saved web page grows? Moreover, it’s become tricky if you want to archive the saved web pages or share with others.

But now that’s an old story with the Google Chrome extension  SingleFile. It can save a webpage in a single html file. The extension embeds images, CSS and other files (excluding videos or Flash) in a single html file.

Moreover, as it is a standard html file you can open it with Firefox, Opera, Safari, and  Internet Explorer 9 without installing any extension. SingleFile can also be used as an alternative to snapshot/screenshot/capture page/scrapbook extensions.

How to Use SingleFile?

After installing the extension open a webpage. Wait until the page is fully loaded. Then click on the SingleFile icon in the chrome toolbar.
Wait until the shadow disappears then hit ctrl-s (or choose Save As option) and save the page.

SingleFile can be downloaded at Chrome Web Store.
