                     10:   <p>Web archives are better than the normal way of saving pages. When you save
                     11:    a complete page as HTML, a folder full of small files is also created. The
                     12:    result may easily become unreadable when moved to other computers or burned
                     13:    onto a CD-ROM. Saving each page in a single file, instead, makes sure that
                     14:    they will remain readable in the future, and allows for faster backups and
                     15:    easier file management.</p>

                     18:   <h3>Include video and audio</h3>
                     19:   <p>Using the MAFF web archive format, you can save multimedia files together
                     20:    with the page, for example a blog post that includes some videos. Combined
                     21:    with the built-in browser support for <b>Vorbis</b>, <b>Theora</b>, and
                     22:    <b>WebM</b> multimedia files in HTML5, MAFF becomes ideal for packaging
                     23:    video, audio, and related resources in a portable file.</p>

                     28:   <p>This feature allows your browser to save every page with greater accuracy,
                     29:    including all styles and images. When you open a page that you saved with the
                     30:    Mozilla Archive Format add-on installed, you see an exact snapshot of what
                     31:    was displayed when you initiated the save command. This is also true for
                     32:    complete pages saved outside of a web archive.</p>

                     35:   <h3>Save many pages in a single file</h3>
                     36:   <p>You can save multiple tabs in a single MAFF archive. Moreover, if you use
                     37:    the Multiple Tab Handler add-on, you can easily select which tabs to
                     38:    save.</p>

                     44:   <p>Every web archive contains the original address from which the page was
                     45:    saved, as well as the date of the save operation. With Mozilla Archive
                     46:    Format, you can find again and reopen the original website, not only for new
                     47:    archives but even for pages previously saved using Internet Explorer.</p>

                     51:   <p>The Saved Pages Conversion Wizard can guide you through the conversion of
                     52:    your previously saved web pages to a different file format. You can convert
                     53:    old pages to MAFF, if you want to save disk space or prevent problems when
                     54:    burning a CD-ROM. You can also convert MAFF back to other formats, in case
                     55:    you need to interoperate with other applications. Thanks to this feature and
                     56:    the fact that MAFF is an open format, you will never find yourself in the
                     57:    situation of being unable to read the web archives you created.</p>

                     69:    to use for everyone. The underlying functionality is still very powerful, and
                     70:    the add-on will generally do the right thing automatically, like preserving
                     71:    the original date and time of previously saved pages. And for the advanced
                     72:    user, many behavioral details can be tweaked from the <tt>about:config</tt>

                     77:   <p>Depending on your habits, you can use the dedicated <b>Save Page In Archive
                     78:    As</b> menu item, or select a web archive file type from the standard <b>Save
                     79:    Page As</b> dialog box. If you don't use some menu items or prefer to have
                     80:    more commands readily available from the context menu, you can optimize the
                     81:    user interface to suit your needs.</p>

                     87:   <p>Saving pages as MAFF lets you minimize disk usage and access time on slow
                     88:    media, since MAFF is based on the universal, compressed ZIP file format. A
                     89:    page saved as MAFF is smaller than the same page saved as individual files,
                     90:    and much smaller than MHTML, because the latter is encoded in a way that
                     91:    makes it usually larger than the original page.</p>

                     95:   <p>Opening MAFF files is nearly instantaneous thanks to the native support
                     96:    for ZIP files of Firefox and SeaMonkey. For creating and opening MHTML
                     97:    files, Mozilla Archive Format uses the fastest JavaScript routines
                     98:    available for MIME encoding and decoding, that have been developed
                     99:    specifically for the add-on.</p>

                    103:   <p>Web archives created with Firefox or SeaMonkey in the MHTML format are 100%
                    104:    compatible with Internet Explorer and other browsers. MAFF archives are also
                    105:    created in such a way that they are fully compatible with any modern ZIP

                    107:   <p>Mozilla Archive Format is designed to integrate not only with the browser,

                    109:    extensions</a> as well. For example, you can use UnMHT if you want advanced
                    110:    options when saving MHTML files, or a download organizer to select your
                    111:    download folders and file names automatically.</p>
