Auto Save Document 126.96.36.199.1-signed.1-signed Requires Restart
Autosave is a small extension, which can be used to store the currently shown document in a seperate directory automatically when browsing a certain site.
About this Add-on
If you click this small icon, the current page will be dumped, regardless if the site is in the autosave list or not.
NOTE: this extension is really, really simple! Only plain text is saved, no external .css,.js => the result may look ugly! The one and only intention for this extension is, to save the text for external parsing*) or similar! Look for Scrapbook etc. in case you want to store more than the plain text!
*) e.g. i wrote an external scanner.exe which parses all files in a special directory on creation. I used it together with this extension to scan the plain html text, parse it and extract some information, which i then put into a database.
