  • (2023-11-07) Ming Su: good, print Friendly!!!.
  • (2023-11-05) Cody Smith: So intuitive, user-friendly, and helpful. Has great smart defaults. Nearly plug and play and super easy to use. It's amazing this is free. Thank you so much for this!
  • (2023-10-28) Robin Lee: PrintFriendly version 3.4.6 doesn't work as well as before. It used to be that clicking on "Download Your PDF" would create a PDF with a filename same as the article title, with the last download location already selected. But since Oct 27, 2023, "Download Your PDF" will open a separate tab in the browser with a PDF named something like "pdf_[string of numbers]Letter.pdf", which requires it to be renamed and saved to a chosen location. So version 3.4.6 requires more steps to save a PDF.
  • (2023-10-23) Dean Kennedy: Would love to see it remember the default page size for PDF so that I don't always have to swap from Letter to A4. This was the old functionality -- but now it is always showing as Letter when I click the PDF button (which isn't even in alphabetical order vs "A4"). Would love the option to change this -- and ideally choose other common sizes too (A3 for me would be great, but I'm sure Legal and Tabloid/Ledger and other common sizes would be great too). Otherwise I love it. I think the tools are great for deleting and editing and I use them to clean up docs all the time where it's hard for Print-Friendly to pick up on what not to include (not your fault -- it's the way the web page coding is done on some sites).
  • (2023-10-15) K T: Kind of a disappointment that it doesn't give you the choice to include images or not. Most of the time, it's only giving text when there are images present and I'd like both or at least the option. **Update*** I've used this more and more and like it better now that images come up and allow some deletion but it's suddenly stopped giving the PDF download option. I hope it's fixed soon. ***Update again*** PDF download came back but no longer recognizes the whole page. Frustrating. I no longer recommend this add on. Skip it and find something else more reliable. It just doesn't work like it did before.
  • (2023-10-14) Diêgo Araújo: Perfeita!!
  • (2023-10-11) Petr Nuska: Worked just fine yesterday. Today, when attempting to "Save PDF", I've got too many redirects error. Is that something that could be fixed?
  • (2023-10-10) George Shoemaker: I was trying to print a Medium article. PrintFriendly knocked the PDF down from 20+ pages to 5. Really easy to truncate elements you don't want. Good tool
  • (2023-10-07) Hon Vuong: very good software
  • (2023-10-06) Vee Ramage: Constantly tells me pages with more than a couple of images are too big to convert, so almost completely useless.
  • (2023-09-07) nporter: I use this extension on my Chrome browser ALL the time. It's wonderful as I can delete content I don't want, ads are automatically removed making a much cleaner document & I can resize images that are often overblown on webpages. One thing that surprised me is that I recently just used it on Microsoft Edge & was surprised that there was an "Edit" button where you could add text & other formatting options. Is this not available on Chrome yet or have I missed that setting?
  • (2023-09-05) Ashutosh Patel: Awesome Extension very useful to customize your traditional PDF view.
  • (2023-09-04) Krishnendu Laha: For some reason the rendering is not that good on Chrome or any Chromium based browser. Tried on Edge and Vivaldi. But works like charm on Firefox and Safari. Weird that it works on less popular browsers rather than most popular browser engine 🤦‍♂️
  • (2023-08-31) Get This: 31 Aug 2023: Getting "We're sorry, but something went wrong" message all the time. Please fix this.
  • (2023-08-31) Prantik Banerjee: The best available tool. But not working from today. The following error message is being displayed: "We're sorry, but something went wrong. If you are the application owner check the logs for more information." Please help.
  • (2023-08-31) MzBee: Forced into downloading it....unable to use it...very difficult to use
  • (2023-08-29) Steve Marshall: The extension fails on some pages that the printfriendly website has no trouble with. I was hoping the extension would make it easier to use this great service!
  • (2023-08-12) Milan Kušnjačić: Prije je radilo dobro. Sad pretpregled više ne prikaže sve slike ili uopće ne prikaže, ne mogu se ukloniti svi neželjeni dijelovi.
  • (2023-08-12) Stephen Omilianowski: I have never been able to get it to successfully print a web page in a more friendly layout. Chrome's print is about the same result each time.
  • (2023-08-03) Ipek Kizil: it is horrible, changed the whole layout. the name should not be print friendly.
  • (2023-08-02) Luis Beccabunco: Una excelente herramienta, indispensable. Desde hace años lo tengo instalado, sin embargo últimamente esta creando saltos de paginas absurdos, innecesarios creando documentos de 3 paginas que caben perfectamente en 1 sola... no comprendo por qué ya que funcionaba perfectamente.
  • (2023-07-31) Vince Kuraitis: Generally pretty good but 1) sometimes misses graphics entirely, and/or 2) graphics show up in the preview yet are not printed. One workaround is to get a .pdf version of your webpage. In my experience a .pdf version is much better at showing all content.
  • (2023-07-25) Симбат «Simbat» Аракелян: Просто шикарное расширение. Раньше приходилось просто пдфить и танцевать с бубном в редакторе, чтобы было адекватно читаемо - теперь это делается за секунду
  • (2023-07-15) Julian LaFreniere: I never do reviews unless the thing being reviewed makes an impact or surprises me in a good (or bad) way. This was better than I expected it to be. I needed to find a way to copy a webpage and I have found that my version of 2019 Word is worse at copying them and keeping formatting and pictures/text than the older 2013 (and 2016) version(s)! Not sure why, but they older ones did a better job. It's like Microsoft disabled or something out of the Copy & Paste into Word process. Anyways, this extension was awesome because saving it as a PDF works just fine for what I am using them for. I recommend giving it a trying it you are looking for something similar.
  • (2023-07-09) Andrew Dale: This extension allows you to print out pages and delete the stuff you don't need, but even more impressive is the customer service and response! I have never seen anything quite like it. Their customer support is a 15 out of 10! Highly recommend this extension!
  • (2023-07-03) WOKE!: ice nice nice oh
  • (2023-06-13) Wesley Brouse: So easy to use, can grab just about any site and lets you get rid of any unneeded text. 10/10
  • (2023-06-07) Brittany Assunto: Great tool! Allows you to easily delete any parts of the page that you do not want to print. This extension works very well and is easy to use.
  • (2023-06-07) Rajesh Ragavendran: Best tool to print any kind of Webpages!
  • (2023-06-07) Ante Milardović: Best extension ever! Only wish you could do more to change fonts and font sizes.
  • (2023-06-01) Сергей Франчук: Очень удобное расширение. Спасибо разработчикам!
  • (2023-05-22) Young Little: 为开发者点赞!太好用了。唯一不足的是转为PDF后,公式间的换行没了,导致公式连在一起
  • (2023-05-18) Fahad Ahmed Sajal: Great extension . But i wish you may enable "Image" saving option and add "Share" option on next update.
  • (2023-05-12) Mo Liu: It doesn't work when needed. Especially on the Facebook page.
  • (2023-04-19) Quân Cây Đa: Only text without any image if saving Pdf file.
  • (2023-04-17) Robert Bernstein: Thank you so much! So many sites now are pure evil in terms of making it impossible to print from them. Your program lets me print, while saving paper and eliminating the rubbish! I definitely will donate! Thanks!
  • (2023-04-13) Dr Peter Yau: this extension is super friendly, very compatible to many websites and actually help to save the world by cutting paper prints with unwanted part removed.
  • (2023-04-11) 余翔: 太棒了,打印利器!!!!!
  • (2023-04-09) 姜繁: https://blog.csdn.net/hzf0701/article/details/107643772 能不要自动过滤博客文章的发表日期、版权等信息?或者让用户可以手动选择删除就更完美了!

  • (2023-03-25) Sorma00: Incredibile estensione! Davvero facile e utile!
  • (2023-03-25) One Shot: The best because it works right from my computer.
  • (2023-03-20) Shoto Ji: Brilliant!
  • (2023-03-19) David Robinette: I've been using Print Friendly for the last 4 years and it works perfectly for me (Windows 10 and 11 only.) Don't know if there is a Mac version. This app is a real time saver and one of the very few I have experimented with that does exactly what it says, and does it perfectly every time.
  • (2023-03-07) Juliana Koh: AWESOME Thanks for this - have been looking for ways to simplify print page (this useful feature was previously available in Chrome but have been missing for quite a while).
  • (2023-02-27) Toby Vũ: Tốt
  • (2023-02-09) Cee Pol: It actually worked and captured everything.
  • (2023-02-02) Lorant Nagy Z: Finally I searched for a printing app and fonund it. Before I struggled to print. This seems to work correctly and I think it's essential for printing an article from the web. Appreciate it a lot.
  • (2023-01-28) Dũng Lê Chí: Worked like a charm! Cannot ask for anything better

  • (2022-02-22, v:2.8.1) Lutz Hohle: Print in newspaper style
    An alternative view in columns, like in a newspaper would be very useful for your tool! For a good readability of printed text about 8 words per line are optimal, to not slip between the lines, like it happens easily with full A4 paper wide lines. Columned view also allows smaller font size, smaller margins. So you get more on each page and even use less paper. Newspapers and magazins didn't use this style without a reason. I have send you (Manu and Taylor) a email with an example. Lutz

  • (2021-02-08, v:2.7.34) CL Cheung: Chinese font problem, simplified chinese and tranditional chinese fonts
    I think many people got this problem. There are two kinds of chinese characters, one is mainly used in China, is simplified chinese characters. One is traditional chinese characters, mainly used in Taiwan and Hong Kong. Not all tranditional chinese characters have a simplfied version, so two character sets overlap. The pdf created mainly got a font problem, which map the simplfied chinese characters to a very strange font, and map the traditional chinese characters to a correct font. That makes a simplified chinese document looks very strange (as they will be in very inconsistent fonts)

    photos inside an article are, what looks like, intentionally blurred out making the add-on un-useable. the pictures are completely loaded on the website.

  • (2020-11-11, v:2.7.25) Noelle Sibley: Article out of order
    Sometimes the converter moves paragraphs around and the article is no longer in the correct order.

    I wanted to ask: 1. Does this plugin collect or record any personal information that a browser has (ie: passwords)? 2. Does this plugin track our browsing activities? 3. Does this plugin access our computer hard-drive and collect any information from there, including any snap-shots or imaging (cloning) of our hard drive content? I do believe knowing this is important to everyone. Appreciate your reply. Thanks
