What is the "Save as MHTML" add-on and how can I use it?
This extension is designed to save the currently active page in MHTL/MHT format which is an excellent format for archiving a webpage. This is basically a tool that helps users to create a snapshot of a page as it is and keep it for later offline access. For instance, a webpage might change and some of its online resources might not be available in the future. By saving the page in MHT format, you will be sure that the content is accessible anytime intact. Also, you can have the page load just fine even if there is no internet connection available.
