Printing a Webpage on the Move and Working On The Go

Web to Print-With PrintWhatYouLike -YOU CAN  print the good parts of any web page while skipping the junk.

Let’s face it folks, printing webpages can be a real pain in the ass. Getting a hard copy of a web page can be frustrating because whilst on the one hand all browsers allow you the option to print and save, on the other hand it is a fact of life that browsers are not optimised for paper printing or layout- end of story. It is frustrating printing out a lot of useless graphics and advertisements and lets face it plenty of junk.

By the time you have printed that page containing in part only the useful information that you actually want you are seriously WASTING valuable costly printer ink !!! That is fact.

I came across a site namely www.printwhatyoulike.com – I would suggest you have nothing to lose by CHECKING  IT OUT out and following the link or indeed clicking the image above. I should say I have no commercial affiliation or connection with this site whatsoever.

What I like about this site is that you simply- Launch it – then  insert the URL of the page you want to print  or save information from. The page in question is loaded and you then have the option to edit the page as you want, and remove quite easily all of the rubbish, and when done—- print the document  or indeed save it which I do is save it then as a PDF.

Personally I have got great use out of this site during downtime at the airport when I often do some web research for business and I find the ability to remove junk from pages and save a clean PDF with the info I want or need – invaluable. I believe some of you out there will also find it useful for working on the move – saving the information that needs to be saved and not the junk

Work Happy
Rosemary

    This looks like a great product, thanks for letting us know, I will try it out.

    At the moment I use Snagit which is sort of a screen capture but it does so much more ie it scrolls down and takes the whole page not just what is on the screen. It was only £30 and it’s good for getting images into Camtasia. However, this sounds great with “the ability to remove junk from pages and save a clean PDF with the info I want or need”

      Kath, many thanks for the feed back and I have heard of snag it and I was thinking of buying it myself. It is a great way to explain something with Camtasia. If there is anything of particular interest to you do feel free to contact me. It is great that we can share details about products and hopefully make all of our working life’s easier. All the best and enjoy the weekend. Rosemary
