  • I was saving a webpage last year, and I thought, “this hasn’t seen an upgrade since they added to save as complete that puts all the assets in a directory, what am i gonna do with a file and a directory? Put them in another directory? Why don't they have it just run all the pictures through ttnypng/jpeg, base64 encode them, compress the styles, and idk what to do with the javascrtpt, but I'm gonna go see if it had been done as an extension.” And when I could not find such an program, did I go read mdn and try to figure out how to write addons? Nope, but gildas here seized the opportunity to write perhaps the most significant piece of software this decade. Our great-grandchildren, if they have a habitable world will read the internet of the past, displayed in near perfect representation of the web we see today.

    Centuries from now when the aliens arrive to find the charred ashes of our civilization. They might also find data crystals containing our web archive. And these pages, with their simplicity, are much more likely to be deciphered allowing our legacy to live on. And when our descendants, if they were lucky enough to find shelter from the coming inevitable extinction level environmental changes. the unrelenting drall of capitalism, having torn through every resource capable of sustaining life and turned it into money for jeff bezos, the koch brothers, elon musk, rick scott, and the rest of those depraved billionaires. all frantically grabbing at everything they can. Inexplicably driven to take whatever is left, and willing to snuff out all life save the chosen few to do it.

    Their nouveau-eugenics standards, though completely without basis in reality, are backed by the controlling interest in reality bought and paid for by the harvest of their death machines and OUR collective toil. Legitimized by the unquestioned fairy tale of the "man who took all the risk" , we will see our scientific progress slow to a crawl while the rich divert more and more into their plans to launch themselves into space before another generation is able to usurp their social status.

    And when our descendents crawl up from their subterranean shelters, will they have continued to learn about the once living world above? Or will they be driven by superstition and other simple operants? Now that I've seen SingleFile | Save a page as a single HTML fileby gildas I have hope for the former. This is, all seriousness - really, one of the most important pieces of software written, ever. Like a scribe in the library of alexandria, writing, storing and sorting the collective knowledge of humanity while the machines of death encroach. Knowing it’s just a matter of time before it all catches up, that the most they can hope for is that something other than the lust for wealth will be remembered of our people.

    Will we just sit back and think to ourselves how nice it is that there is something like that, or will we take an active role. Will we work together to use these tools to ensure copies are made and cataloged properly? Will we take a few dollars and send them to developes like gildas, so they might dedicate more of their time to creating the tools of our salvation, or will we send them to jeff bezos because we wanted that new phone that has a 200MHz slower processor than the one from last year, but they put a new skin on the homescreen and added some "security" feature we don't really understand, but it sounds cool.
  • Excellent and compact saving web pages to one file
  • Very cool!!
  • Great! A light year ahead of SavePageWE, which crashes Fox tab when saving a heavy & shitty page. Additionally, this addon creates pages that 3-4 times smaller in size! I just can't get happier. At the moment, SingleFile is the only normally functioning addon of its kind.
  • just awesome... must use over save to pdf
  • Super Tool !!!

    Speichert Internetseiten so ab wie man sie im Browser sieht.
    Sehr hilfreich zur Dokumentation und bei Onlinekäufen.

    Ersetzt bei mir ab sofort das nicht mehr unterstützte scrapbook

    Anders als bei SingleFileZ werden Dateiinhalte von z.B. " docfetcher " indexiert was für das Wiederauffinden von Informationen absolut notwendig ist ;-)
    Danke schön! The latest version of SingleFileZ should fix your indexing issue ;-)
  • very very awesome, I do not have to save html to a pdf..
  • Awesome!
  • The best add on ever. Build a email in dreamweaver. Live preview it. Save as single file. Open the single file in dreamweaver. Cut and paste it into a thunderbird htlm email and you are done.

    Perfect html email including images and css text. Please never stop supporting this add on.
    Thank you very much for your review! Note that the "Save selection" entry in the contextual menu could also help you to save the interesting part in the page. You can also press the Ctrl key to select multiple parts if necessary.
  • Good 👍
  • Can you add an option to hide the Tab context menu that was recently added to this extension?

    Edit:
    Thank you, that worked.
    Thanks for your review. It's currently possible via a hidden option. Export your settings and change the value of "tabMenuEnabled" in the exported file to false (it's set to true by default). Then, you just have to import this modified file and the menu entry should disappear.

    Edit:
    You're welcome!
  • Awesome. Small single file, txt-searchable. No problems so far.
  • I don't know why Firefox removed the "save page as html" function, it is useful and necessary,Thank you gildas.
