Convert Web Pages In Google Chrome To High Quality PDF Files

by Chrome Blog on February 19, 2009

If you want to save a webpage looks like the same as what it appears on the website, then converting such webpage into a pdf file is the right solution. I came to know of a PDF Bookmarklet from the site PdfDownload which lets you do just the same with any web-page in Google Chrome.

What is a bookmarklet?

A bookmarklet came from the two words bookmark and applet. But this term is basically a computer application that is treated like normal bookmarks. It is just a one-click type of tool that adds new functions to your ordinary browser.

The most important function that it does is extracting data out of a web page such as images, texts and hyperlinks.

Here is a step-by-step guide to convert webpages in Google Chrome to high quality pdf files:

  • First, try to check if your bookmarks bar is showing on the browser. If you can’t see it, then go to Tools menu and choose Always show bookmarks bar.
  • Second, drag the link “Save Page as PDF” and place it right into the Bookmarks Bar.

  • When you got the link on the Bookmarks bar, when you bumped into a webpage that you want to save then just click the “Save Page as PDF”.
  • If you want to open the webpage right on a pdf file just open it up on your My Documents or the folder where you save the pdf file.

Thats it and you are done!

With this ever increasing compatibility of softwares and programs with google chrome, i am sure more and more users would switch to this user friendly and fast browser from Google.

Pointless. In Firefox: File->Print, Print to File, Output format: PDF. Built-in, and couldn’t be easier.

what i could download the add one ?

I thing that for the apple Chrome the web2pdf is useless, since this remarkable piece of technology has this as an embedded feature.

However I believe that this is a real good plugin for Windows system.

Good work….

You want to get doPDF which lets you print pdf from anything. There are others, but doPDF is a nifty free tight little application.

“We’re sorry! Please try converting your web page again in a few minutes.
You’ve requested your conversion at a peak period and unfortunately this our servers were unable to process your request this time. Please try converting your web page to PDF again in a few minutes.”

I get this message and nothing ever happens.
Please wait…

PDF Download is busy converting your Web Page to PDF.
This may take a couple of minutes.
Have not been able to get this to work . If anybody knows how to troubleshoot, I would appreciate it

Is it possible to implement this in a commandline call to chrome so that printing of urls can be automated?

15 Saxman 04.14.10 at 8:31 am

What a piece of CRAP! I tried this in IE and Firefox and it never worked, Actually worked in Chrome, but I need to convert Https: pages and it will only revert page to the login page and prints that!! WOW what a waste of time!! THanks

If you go to to File > Print…> then on the bottom left hand corner it says PDF with a drop down menu you select “Save as PDF…”

Voila, easy.

19 Renan 03.09.11 at 7:41 pm

Under linux enviroment (I use Kubuntu), Chome includes this feature. I usually select the entire page in order to print not only the visible part, and then use the ‘print to file’ option. Even when the print option is not shown, the ctrl-a + ctrl-p combination always does the trick.


20 lionel 05.11.11 at 7:17 pm

No offence to google chrome but its takes too long to converts webpages to pdfs compared to mozilla firefox or internet explorer

21 suman 11.28.11 at 6:48 am

try HTML to PDF plugin for Google Chrome. No need make any settings. Just install the extension and your document will be converted to PDF in a single click.

your website is the best

23 Jim 06.18.12 at 1:03 pm

I don’t know about 2009, but now this is built into Chrome. Print, Destination “save as pdf.” Recently switched to Chrome from Firefox due to problems with Flash in Firefox while Chrome seems to have no problems.

Or you can also use an online converter if you have a different browser, it is as easy and efficient. I recommend http://kitpdf.com/web_to_pdf/.
