I am going back on forth on this subject. While HTML “seems” to work it appears I get better fuzzy matching with web archives. How do most of you save web pages for research?
The majority of the time I capture PDFs.
What do you see as the advantage of a PDF?
What is the benefit to using a PDF?
They’re cross-platform capable and a de facto standard in many industries. There is a ton of support and utilities for working with them.
The majority of web pages can still be successfully rendered as a PDF, so they’re visually representative of the original.
Dynamically loaded content is killed when rendered so there is no lag when loaded as a web archive will try to load the content.
