Personally, I can't read e-books, I just don't like it. I find real books better . But yea, technology is there, and it is quite useful for people who like it.

Well, if you are talking about Kindle, I don't think the Windows based software will help there?

I don't think Pale Moon has the capability yet.
Most browsers including Pale Moon will have a print function. When you select Print, it goes to an option for you to select either a physical printer (HP printer, etc) or a virtual printer.

In Windows 10, it includes two virtual printers: "Microsoft Print to PDF" and "Microsoft XPS Document Writer". The former saves your result in a pdf file, which can be read in most PDF or eBook readers; The latter saves your result either in an XPS or OXPS file, which needs an XPS viewer to view its content.

Using a virtual printer to save a page in PDF file is mostly not text-searchable unless using OCR, whereas using "Save as PDF" (or "Export to PDF") in some office applications mostly results in a smaller file size and text searchable.

Hope this helps.

A quick check from Opera browser that I am using, it not only allows you to print to a pdf file via a virtual printer, it also completes with "Save as PDF" from a webpage directly w/o going through a virtual printer and thus text searchable.

Thanks!
I have been successfully using the "Print" then save as PDF ability in Chrome and then copying the PDFs into the Kindle; this has been working out pretty good.
I have blundered around in Pale Moon and all I can manage is to "save page as" with no PDF option.
I have not yet found a "Print" option anywhere in Pale Moon.
There are a lot of things I like about Pale Moon, but I do also find a few missing pieces here and there.
Being able to save various web-pages on the Kindle has been very helpful and I have now read a ton of things that I probably never would have otherwise.

All of that being said, when it is an available option, I very much prefer old-timey printed books; however, in cases like this, they are not an option.

Thanks for all of the help.
