Best in its Class for saving public webpages

about Archive.is · · Helpful Not helpful

If you are a webdeveloper you should know about this app. Because its important to save your work in the event the company you work for decides to change website you work on etc (saving portfolio)

Also, for saving webpages, its best in its class

Alternatives are like Small SingleFile iconSingleFile which works on the client side, but is not exactly 100% reliable though and is better for things behind login paywalls

Otherwise, archive.is is best in class for server-based downloading of webpages

Its also support by Small Reddit Enhancement Suite iconReddit Enhancement Suite as well, many times used to save someones deleted twitter, reddit, or facebook posts, etc

Is similar to app Small Wayback Machine iconWayback Machine

Also other pros: You can download entire zip file of a webpage too. Super useful if you want a non-online version of notes stored on your mobile phone, perhaps you have job interview and need to show portfolio but have no internet in some locations, etc. Useful for versioning control data as well too
