How to Save Content from Websites

LINER — Highlight While You Read

You can save websites for later by using Read-it-Later apps. While there are various apps for saving articles for later such as: Pocket, Instapaper, and Diigo. Saving websites is a bit more difficult. You can easily save a website by using apps like:

Full Page Screen Capture — Which takes a screenshot of the entire website. By taking a screenshot of the website you can preserve the website in a a permanent archive. I use Full Page Screen Capture when I want to save the design of a landing page. This app will save the entire page from top to bottom. Most screen-capture tools only save the immediate screen. Despite all the advancements of apps, sometimes a screenshot works best.

Evernote Web Clipper — You can save the entire page by clipping the website into Evernote. With Evernote Web Clipper you also have the option to the save the article or take a screenshot of your screen. All these clippings are saved in your Evernote for safe keeping. I regularly use Evernote Web Clipper to save website landing pages I’m interested in. One downside is that the saved website does not look great on Evernote from time to time.

LINER — Private Web/PDF Highlighter — You can also use LINER to save the specific texts within the website. The great thing about LINER is that the highlights stay in the same location even if you close the website. As the highlights stay in the same place, you can even pinpoint specific highlighted text to your friends, by sharing the highlighted website — Medium is not a publishing tool — The Story — Medium — 38 Highlights with LINER
