Description

16 years ago
Currently, it is too hard to save a web content on the local disk and do off
line work if the web content include image or link.

one example for me is when I try to save the content of
http://www.microsoft.com/typography/otspec/indicot/reg.htm
to my local disk, it take me about 10 minutes to save all the image one by one.

I hope we can have an option in the "Save Page as..." 
and ask user if they want to save the image in the same direcory

for example, the page contains some image to some path in / or absolute url. It
will is easy to save them but them it require the brower to change the saved
page to link to the new place. However for local image, if we can save them in
the same directory, then the off-line user won't need to change the page to view
them.

not sure what is the right UI for this. Just want to my life eaiser when I am
off line.
Mozilla has already a "complete web page" save. (You gave no build ID....)
It will save all images and it changes the Path to the images.

Do you mean that ? 
I think the request is that instead of munging links in the page as we currently 
do we keep the absolute links absolute and save things pointed to with relative 
links, creating the directories relative to the directory the page is saved as, 
as needed.  Am I correct?

if there's a relative path like '../../images/xyz.png', we still need some tweaking.

timeless asked me to suggest wording (not always the best idea, but...)

So, for the title, how about "Save as Page Mirror"?

Ideally this would use a dir picker but it's too late for that :-/

[The idea was that the dir picker would map to the site root]
