How to Save a Web Page as PDF

How to Save a Web page as PDF

A web page consists of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript which can only be accessed by a web browser. Not only do you need a web browser to access it, you also need internet connection except you save it for offline use. The limitation of this is that when you save a web page for offline use on a PC, you can't access it on a mobile phone. This is because whenever you save a web page, multiple files and folders are saved together with it and you need those files and folders to view the page correctly whenever you need it.
