his extension enhances the way web pages are saved on your computer. It provides the following advantages over the built-in save system:
- A complete page can be saved in a single file (web archive)
- You can name files using the title of the page (title save)
- The saved pages are faithful to the original (exact save)
You can view and save MHT (MHTML) files, with excellent compatibility with Internet Explorer; but more importantly, you can use the MAFF file format, with the following advantages:
- Save disk space, since MAFF files are compressed
- Include video and audio embedded in the pages
- Be universal, since MAFF is based on ZIP and compatible with Linux and other platforms
- Use an open format, with no risk of vendor lock-in
The MAFF format is exceptional when combined with the built-in browser support for the Ogg Vorbis and Ogg Theora media formats in web pages: you can save everything in a single file. You can even save more than one tab in a single MAFF file. The MAF extension allows you to convert your already saved pages to the format of your choice. You can use this feature to save disk space, or even to convert MAFF to the other formats, should you ever decide to go back. MAF also interoperates with other extensions, for example:
- Multiple Tab Handler (easily select the tabs to save)
- UnMHT (additional expert features to read and write MHTML)
