Boosted because they just uploaded the video to YouTube where Linus says this.
I feel like the "Save this webpage" function of web browsers isn't very useful to 90% of websites anymore so maybe it should be... relabelled or something 🤔 "Save as HTML"? ... Doesn't help much. Idk
When I was working on CryptPad, I asked the team to hook ctrl+s just because I kept hitting it out of instinct when I was working in a pad.
@brianna Depends on the page - anything where the graphics would want to be retained, absolutely, there you want some kind of "whole page save", be it some kind of browser-specific archive, or simply printing to a PDF. But there still seems enough utility in a plain HTML save as well.
That said, it's worth considering the question from "what would J Random Person want?" - I suspect the results might lean toward anything that results in the page /as seen/ being saved for easy viewing some other time, ideally in some way they can share.
