Save / Archive Web Pages Online on Cloud

+1 Your Mark!!
Web pages get changed daily. You may want to save them for many reasons. May be for future use in your research, for your collection about some interest but its not that easy to save these pages in the good and sophisticated way.
You can use the old fashioned way like saving the pages in PDF formats, printing them or saving the web pages in HTML of HTML archive formats.
You can also save them or save the URL of webpages by using the tools like "Read it Later"  or save the URL of that page in your favorite bookmark site.
But here is the totally new way of saving the web page in Great format and that even as you see it. That's also in cloud and in you safe personal folder or in your account.

Save webpages online on Cloud

The Problem with Web Archiving Tools

The above options seem to work well but the only problem is that they aren’t always good at saving exact copies of a web page. They do download the images, JavaScript and CSS files associated with a page but try re-opening that saved page in your favorite browser and you’ll know the difference.

If you are therefore looking for a better tool to archive web pages, one that saves everything and doesn’t mess with the formatting, check out bo.lt. Just put the URL of any web page, hit the Copy button (or use the bookmarklet) and, within few seconds, an exact replica of the original page will get saved to your online account.

Your Personal Internet Archiving Machine

Once you have saved a page to the bo.lt cloud, a thumbnail of the page appears in your collection but you can also download a copy of that saved page to your computer as a ZIP file. For that, go to the details section and hit the download button as shown in the above screenshot. You can also capture multiple snapshots of the same page at different intervals just like the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.

To be fair, bo.lt is more than just an online tool for archiving web page – it lets you visually edit saved pages in the browser, remix them with pictures and comments, and republish. It mirrors all the images, CSS and JS files referenced in a page so even if the source disappears, your copy will continue to look like the original.

One more thing. You may also use Bo.lt to save and archive web pages that require login – like your Facebook page.
