Reading Web Pages Offline?

I often print web pages to pdf to read on my computer or my e-reader. Preferably my e-reader.

I am wondering if other people have found it easier to read web pages as html, pdf, epub, etc...? I currently use Firefox and don't see an easy way to export pages to epub.

I uses dotepub to save pages. They say they have a firefox plugin, but I haven't used it, I've only used the chrome plugin.

Thanks. I couldn't see it among the available add-ons. I am trying GrabMyBook, but haven't gotten that one working yet.

GrabMyBooks doesn't work with every page, and the exports don't show up properly in my e-reader. They show up as "GrabMyBooks articles" instead of by their titles. They show up by their titles on my computer, so I can't fix that from there.

Well, I use Pocket, which works fine, for offline use on a computer, but no export to EPUB unfortunately. But it does have apps for iOS and Android and also, Kobo, which for me most of the time suffices. Also, it requires an account and for saving web pages offline, you require the Addon/Extension for your respective web browser.

You can get it here: http://getpocket.com/

There are several possibilities:
dotEPUB: http://dotepub.com/ (seriously, this is the first link found in google when entering dotepub. How you couldn't find it eludes me)

pocket articles can be converted using calibres fetch news feature, there is a recipe for it

Push to kindle: http://fivefilters.org/kindle-it/ despite the name it also supports epub

Readability:https://www.readability.com/

and I think there are even more. All of the above have a firefox extension.

I couldn't find it, because I was looking in the add-on search, not in Google. like I said: "I couldn't see it among the available add-ons." I use Google for some things, because DuckDuckGo doesn't work and doesn't have scholar search, but I don't like to use Google.

You may want to check out http://wallabag.org. It's open source, can be self-hosted (but they also offer a free service) and it let's you export any article as ePub.
