But not everyone on the earth is so lucky to have a reliable internet connection all the time. A lot of developing Asian and African countries do not have proper access to the Internet. In such cases, even browsing the web becomes difficult. To solve this problem, Chrome has a built-in feature for downloading web pages. If you are looking to download a full webpage in Google Chrome, then you have landed in the right place. Here are two easy ways to download a web page in Google Chrome for offline viewing on computers as well as smartphones.

At times we need to download a specific page for offline viewing. Like downloading files, images, videos, PDFs, Chrome can download web pages. You can download a web page and view it when you are not connected to the Internet. The process of downloading a web page is a little bit different for computers and smartphones.

Step 4: The format option is for either you want to download it as an HTML web page or a complete web page. I would recommend going with the default complete web page option.
Step 5: Once everything is selected click Save. The page will now be downloaded to the selected destination. You can open that page even when you don’t have an active Internet connection.
The method of downloading a web page on smartphone is completely different however it works very similar as desktop. Follow the below steps and you will be able to download web pages on your smartphones and access them later when there is no Internet.
