Windows 7: What is the best way to capture a web page frozen in time?

What is the best way to capture a web page frozen in time?

By this question I mean, how can I save a web page that CANNOT BE EDITED later by anyone. Let's say you want to capture a page and send it to someone who cannot then use any software to edit the content or the date it was saved.

I'm currently using Chrome and saving a page as pdf. But not sure if that does the job.

Of course printscreen might do the job but it's rather cumbersome.

Any ideas?

The only way I can think of is changing the file attributes to Read-only.

Thanks.

I should clarify further, my purpose is to show that a web page was captured as it really was, without any doubt, even if the page GOES DOWN later. For example, if you need to send a page of a newspaper to someone and say "they did print that, see?"

Well, to avoid the possibility of someone accusing you of editing the page before sending it, I can recommend the Firefox extension called Screengrab: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...b-fix-version/

It can take screenshots of the entire webpage you're on all at once without having to scroll around.

Yes, and I believe Chrome has a similar extension. But the question remains, this screenshot can later be manipulated? How can we remove any doubt of "page fabrication"?

Thank you!

I'm not sure, but I think that there are ways to prove that an image has not been manipulated (such as with Photoshop).

I think that this is the best I can personally do.
