    I don't know if this is the right place for this question. I was wondering whether people might have ideas on the best way to save news articles or other interesting links that you come across.

    Sometimes I'll save articles as pdfs, that's a bit cumbersome though. I also use WebnoteHappy, a nice desktop bookmark management app. But that's only as good as the link survives. I use OmniOutliner Pro for other purposes, I'm not sure that would be the best solution as web clippings can only be used for text selections.

    Other ideas?

    Paparazzi works fairly well, although I don't know if it works for sites that require authentication.

    I made an example but I had to recompress it in jpeg so it'll up load to this site. The second one is a crop of the first in original quality.

    Not the files themselves, but I guess I'm looking for a faster saving/organization workflow.

    I suppose you could write an Applescript that would print to pdf and store in a particular directory and then use Spotlight to find and retrieve the file. I wouldn't rely on bookmarking because, as you say, who knows how long the page (or site even) will be around.

    If you use Firefox then the scrapbook add-on might be usefull.

    I use Safari, but my GF uses Firefox Scrapbook all the time.

    Yeah I was going to recommend scrapbook.

    Clipmarks is a handy way of saving info in it's original format. (Another FF extension)
