You might have noticed that when you try to save a web page in Google's Chrome Browser for Mac OS X, you get only two options i.e Webpage, only HTML or Webpage, Complete, you have no option to save the page as PDF. I tried some of the extensions for Chrome that did save the page pdf but tampered the alignment or added some unwanted .
