in reply to How can I download HTML and save it as txt?

If you don't want to save it like text from your browser, you could do like this...

Create a new printer but choose a plain text printer, and add the option to save it as a file instead of printing it. Then, when you choose /Print at any app. you are going to be prompted for the name and location of your text file. And that's it! It would write it as if you had an old plain text matrix printer (without any graphics)...

But it is better to have Firefox and it's incredible extensions (Copy to...).

[marinersk]: LanX, the problem is that the lack of interface visual stability is disconcerting to me. The Nodelet appearing and disappearing is distracting, and despite over a decade, still troubles me. It jangles me.
[LanX]: I see
[marinersk]: I appear to be unusually dependent on spacial stability. I have had trouble from someone moving an object a mere four inches to the left.
[Eily]: I think the solution is to write posts so brilliant that you gain XP on each refresh, no matter how often :P
[marinersk]: Eily++ and LOL
[marinersk]: I get a lighter version of this disconcertion (new word?) when the n points remaining until rank disappears.
[choroba]: :-D
