  • (2021-05-09) Nicholas Dewey: Use it everyday. Makes my life so much easier, especially when researching topics in newspapers, and magazines. The editing functions mean I can remove superfluous content from the page so I have exactly what I need.
  • (2021-05-07) L J: Been using this extension for several years now and I love it. It's intuitive, easy to use, works flawlessly. It gives you control over what elements in the webpage you want to keep/remove or reduce/enlarge. Keep in mind when printing your PDF that you need to use the PRINT button at the top of the newly created PDF window that pops open (from where you edit your new PDF document) rather than printing using your keyboard print commands. Your keyboard commands will attempt to print the original webpage. Thank you for such a useful tool!
  • (2021-05-07) Turtle Turtle: Can you please add the ability to print Twitter threads correctly? Currently it strips out embedded twitter feeds from pages and in Twitter directly, the formatting is all messed up, cutting out images, text, etc. Also, what you preview in the plugin is not what gets saved to a PDF... sometimes images get stripped (Twitter or pages with embedded twitter feeds).
  • (2021-05-02) Matthew Grow: Ultra low drag, high speed way to generate PDFs and printable docs!!!
  • (2021-04-18) Isak Lytting: I like the output: I.e., it outputs a PDF without page-separations (just one, long scrollable "page"), but it seems it's not my computer doing the conversion! It gets done by the server of the company which made this extension, and then I download the finished file from them! This seems like a poor idea. It both tells them what i am interested in, and it uses up bandwidth needlessly! Both for the planet as whole (wasted energy and bandwidth), and for me (I have to download the same page twice!), and it wastes my internet bandwidth, having to download the PDF-file I have already downloaded as a webpage, and I have to wait for the company's server to finish doing the computation for 10-20 seconds - this can be longer or shorter depending on how many people are using the service right now! - instead of having my own computer do it in a fraction of a second! Kudos for the output quality, but not for the scheme by which it is done!
  • (2021-04-13) Javed Imtiaze Khan: God bless the developer!
  • (2021-04-12) Orletta Caldwell: One of my useful and frequently used extensions.

  • (2021-04-01) Levs Cherish: 挺不错的,就是保存pdf的时候,中文字体会惨不忍睹,建议选择打印然后保存pdf。。。 希望适配一下中文字体!
  • (2021-03-23) Rammble: Used to be one of the best Chrome extensions out there but it stopped working on quite a number of webpages after the January 2021 update. I contacted support with some examples and they said they would look into it, but there's been at least three updates since the problem started and it's still not working. Such a shame.
  • (2021-03-23) ii r: 为什么我用大概五六次之后,点击icon就出不来了?然后又要卸载重装就又能用了,然后几次后又不行了。请问还有人是我这种情况吗
  • (2021-03-22) Kevin Drew: "Sorry. An error occurred. Please try again."
  • (2021-03-12) Federico Ridolfi: awesome, well done guys!
  • (2021-03-07) Rafael Castanet: I wrote a 4-star review earlier about this extension. I'm lowering it to 3 stars because even though I uninstalled it from Chrome and reinstalled it, it still didn't work in the Chrome browser. It usually stops working after 2.5-3 months and a reinstall usually fixes the problem. I just installed it on Firefox and there was no problem, so I'll continue to use it on FF. It's a useful extension and I've used it extensively, but its performance can vary greatly in different browsers.
  • (2021-03-05) James Thompson: In general, a terrific utility, but there are websites that defeat PrintFriendly. The vast majority do not. In general I find it a very useful way to print to .pdf or printer, first deleting - at my discretion - unnecessary graphics & internal (to the website) advertising; regular ads always get stripped. That's really worthwhile. I see two kinds of problem: 1. The extension fails to catch the data you want & shows only extraneous stuff; think the "other suggested content" material the website offers.I suspect there are ways to pump data (text on some news sites) directly into "boxes" on-screen (invisible to you) that PrintFriendly can't intercept. In this case I just use Chrome's print command. 2. Some websites pump graphics to screen, again in a way that PrintFriendly can't capture. Two examples are Barron's Marketwatch.com site and DowJones' website Investors.com. In both cases text is captured fine but anything in a graph or data display is either missing or comes through as junk.
  • (2021-03-01) Jinkuo He: 太好用了,有的网页chrome打印不了,用这个特别完美。
  • (2021-02-26) tphj: Missing text and images from all pages I tested.

  • (2021-02-13) Li Yong Chen: Easy to use, easy to remove parts you don't need. Amazing!
  • (2021-02-11) Jennifer Marks Bailey: I'm not sure what I'd do without this. Easy to use, intuitive settings, quick, easy, and does exactly what I need.
  • (2021-02-10) Grace Burgess: Absolutely fantastic. Makes terribly messy articles into easily readable pdfs, incredibly easy to use.
  • (2021-02-06) David Silberman: I have been used this plugin for around one year very intensively on two work computers. It is FANTASTIC. Super easy to use. Allows me to save entire web sites as pdf or only the text parts that I need to save or print. Works very very well. Does what it is supposed to do better than expected. This is a must for anybody saving or printing WEB content.
  • (2021-02-05) Iñaki Jiménez Miranda: Está muy bien eso de poder seleccionar qué elementos quieres que se impriman y cuáles no. Genial.
  • (2021-02-02) Michael Hayman: Great, simple, yet powerful UI! Can delete any element very quickly, very intuitively, and has picked up every element from the page I needed every time. Thanks so much!
  • (2021-01-22) Evan Lei: I used this extension to print something, but I was unable to delete parts of the text in one section and the extension is unable to make HTML5 objects (like tables). Also it doesn't match the original Google Chrome print preview in landscape mode.
  • (2021-01-20) Haiwen Yang: 现在的新版本根本都无法使用,换了几个chrome也无法使用,为什么?
  • (2021-01-19) Anthony Feenan: One of the most useful extensions in the store. Thanks developer

  • (2020-12-24) Dak Lak: Outstanding! Only a couple of websites it doesn't work on. My technical librarian has found it such a help in archiving our documents. DakLak Digital VietNam
  • (2020-12-22) Marius Becker: In general, I love this extention above all. But on very long websites with a lot of text, the program will not work as it should, I keep getting an error message. Does anyone know how to fix this? Keep on the good work!
  • (2020-12-16) Seeker Green: It is insane not to love this extension.
  • (2020-12-13) María Nahíma: I'm not one of those who lose much time in writing a review but... oh woooow| I was SO in need of an extension that could substitute Evernote's Clearly! I looked around and found this one which even does SO much MORE! You can even delete those tiny pieces (captions and links related to the article) that still stay into the article with extreme easiness. I've just discovered it, used it once and so immediately GRATEFUL that I felt the need to write this review.
  • (2020-11-30) Nicole A van Erven Sigaud: This plugin never returned a PDF with clickable link, no matter what efforts I make.
  • (2020-11-25) Dazz: Fantastic plugin, it has a nice readable font & is the quickest at selecting junk i.e pictures, side bars, ads, menu navigation, headers, footers, etc. It gives you the option of text size & picture size percentages to reduce or make larger. It could be improved it doesn't work on every site though works best with large readable content sites like news articles or product review sites. It isn't designed for printing lots of pictures i.e picture galleries from sites, it's best at like I say long readable articles which you want to reduce the junk from leaving you a very clean looking easy to read PDF file. I use Print Edit WE extension plugin for more complex websites though it takes far too long to get all webpage junk removed & is more advanced though Print Friendly is super quick & my go to 90% of the time. Highly Recommended.
  • (2020-11-20) matthew girod: Does what it says and does it very well. It has a nice clean interface and prints and saves PDFs just you would expect. Thank you.

  • (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)

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

Thanks in advance, István from Hungary
  • (2020-09-01, v:2.7.24) Nick Keller: A smaller page size like A5 and/or B5?
    Hello! Thank you for adding serif availability. I was thinking, A4 is fairly similar to Letter size anyway and perhaps an A5 and/or B5 options could be added for when someone benefits from a smaller page? I usually prefer to read A5/B5 when browsing pdfs on the computer, although anything is fine for tablet.

  • (2020-06-03, v:2.7.20) Grant Blank: Not working for Washington Post or Guardian articles
    When I use Print Friendly to print an article from the Washington Post, it does not include any of the pictures and graphics. This is very annoying for articles that make use of visuals or refer to pictures, something that is increasingly common. For the Guardian, it only prints the first picture in an article, not any others. It prints the picture at reduced size even though I have images set to 100%. Note that this problem does not occur on BBC articles. All BBC pictures print at full size. Can you please fix Print Friendly for the Washington Post & the Guardian. Thanks.
