Why we prefer the PDF is, PDF format is the light weight simple file, easy transfer to Amazon Kindle or your tablet and save for future reference or even email to your friends.

You can easily do this with your MAC without any third party apps. There are two steps to do this. First, you have to convert the article more readable and less clutter page. Once you do that then you can convert the page into PDF and save onto your computer.
