Just realized that pages that aren't loaded completely
(e.g. not all images) can't be saved "as is", unless the browser is temporarily set to OFFLINE! Oops...
Otherwise, when saving a page, the download of all the missing items will start "secretly" in the background
, which could be an unpleasant surprise if someone doesn't realize this, and pays per data size.
And obviously in offline mode the page is saved from cache: if the empty-cache-button is clicked before saving, only the html-file will get saved, nothing else, although on the screen the page is still displayed with a couple images and the css-stylesheet.
Example: A forum page with a bunch of HUGE images, but images blocked with the exception of the smilies and buttons originating from the forum-domain. Or download stopped in the middle of loading the huge images.
So I think a third option might be not bad
File / Save page as... / Web Page, html only
File / Save page as... / Web Page, complete
File / Save page as... / Web Page, partly as cached
(or as is, or what you see, or as seen or shown, or...)
