On occasion, some PDFs had odd formatting and you have to use the top / bottom of your document rather than the sides, but it works quite well regardless.
Thanks for that, never seen this function, and that's exactly what I want.
I removed it from my list.

Actually, a solution I've found is a firefox addon : GrabMyBooks. I use it with google reader that can grab all feeds, articles and blogs that I follow, and generates a really clean capture of the content.
Just select this content, right-click > grabmybook > grab selection > edit > save. Then edit the metadata and click on grabmybook to save it directly inside the kobo. Don't forget to click on the delete button on top of grabmybook after that, or else it will add next articles as chapters.
It gives an ebook without errors or useless menus or things we don't want, only the content and images.
This is the simplest way I found. If someone found something more simple...

Could be nice, but when I use the webbrowser, I hardly think Kobo isn't done for web browsing. Not enough powerful ?
