Editors' review

There's more than a little irony in this application name, which kept us in an inescapable log-in loop but didn't convert a single Web page to PDF format.

When you first install LOOP to PDF for Firefox, the publishers Web site appears with a step-by-step guide on how to use the program, and a shortcut icon is installed on your toolbar for activating the application as a sidebar. You have to create an account before you can use the free program, and you'll need to enter your e-mail address and select a password. We were impressed by the programs performance right up to the time we hit Enter and the Web page cleared our entries. We tried to enter our e-mail address and password in the login feature on the sidebar, but we kept getting an error message. The publisher offers support on its Web site, but you have to log in to use it. In other words, it doesn't do you a whole lot of good because logging in is the problem in the first place.

We liked the idea of this free program, but in reality, we never got far enough to see how it works. Until the publisher works out a few major issues, we recommend you skip this one altogether.

    "Very Nice Utility"

    November 26, 2007   |   By tonyny77

    Version: LOOP to PDF for Firefox 0.62

    Pros

    Free, easy to use, works very well. It's not perfect, but it is very, very good.

    Cons

    Some converted web pages had parts along the right side chopped off. This was a fairly complex web page with many frames and elements, though. But in this case, the parts I needed were intact.

    Some web pages produce a PDF document that takes the output all the way to the edges of the page. The output image produced no left margin and for multi-page conversions, the bottom of the first page and tops and bottoms of subsequent pages had no margin. All the data was there, but without the ability to set margins, the output had an odd, off-centered look, of course.

    I trust the future versions will be a bit more refined, but I still give it 4 out of 5 stars.
