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...).

{ \ ( ' v ' ) / }
( \ _ / ) _ _ _ _ ` ( ) ' _ _ _ _
( = ( ^ Y ^ ) = ( _ _ ^ ^ ^ ^
_ _ _ _ \ _ ( m _ _ _ m ) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ) c h i a n o , a l b e r t o
