HM WebCopy is a handy add-on for both Firefox and Internet Explorer that lets users save Web page content without all the ads and other clutter that often fills Web sites these days. Although the application didn't knock our socks off, we can see how it would be useful if you frequently need to save HTML files without the mess.

HM WebCopy is quite easy to use. Let's say, for example, that you find a news story online that you'd like to save as an HTML document, but you don't want all the ads and other detritus that surround it. Simply highlight the text you want to save, right-click, and selected HM WebCopy from the context menu. A small interface appears that lets you choose the formatting style, file name, and any additional text (such as the date the files was accessed) that you'd like to add. The program then saves the page as an HTML file with the selected formatting. We tried HM WebCopy in both Firefox and Internet Explorer, and it worked well in both browsers. The add-on isn't perfect; depending on how a particular Web page is formatted, it may or may not be effective. Sometimes you have no choice but to highlight objects that you don't really want in order to get the whole story, and HM WebCopy offers no way to edit these out. Still, the program works well for the most part, and its built-in Help file is well written and thorough.

HM WebCopy has a 30-day trial period. The program installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
