It is another web app which let you convert any web page into a PDF file, this service very much similar to PrintWhatYouLike, but when you load a page to make its PDF version then you will note that it will automatically removes the background so make you page minimal.
A bad thing is that if you had loaded an page and if that page has some link then you wont be able to check that link from its interface, but PrintWhatYouLIke allows you to open links too.
Here you too has the choice to select the size of the font, it provides 5 kinds of font, you can remove any contain from the page by just clicking on it.
When you are done you can get it print or you can download a PDF version right into your computer, a nice feature which it provide is that it allows you to get that PDF version of page emailed to your friend or even you can mail it to your own email address.
This service too allow you to get a button for your web sit and a bookmarlet for easy and fast loading of any webpage.

It is a free web app which is run by Nitro Team, I hope you are aware of Nitro PDF reader, it’s a quite useful, light and easy to use PDF reader.
Here you don’t need to visit the site an enter URL, all you need to do is just install their Bookmarklet or Add-ON (for Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer) into your browser and then get any web page into a PDF version.
It wont allows you to customize the look and remove any content from the page, to use it first install add-on or bookmarklet and then visit the page of which PDF version you want, then just click on that bookmarklet.
Then it will redirect you to a page where you need to provide your email address so that you will get a PDF file of that page.
After sometime you will get an email with a PDF attachment.
I think they need to add some customization feature to it, as if you want to get PDF version of some portion of page then also you have to get whole web page.

It is another cool and nice site which allows you to get a PDF version of any webpage, like PdfDownload, it too wont allow you to twaek or customize the PDF file, if you wanna remove any content from page then this is not the right choice for you.
To use this web service you need to visit the site and then provide the URL of that page which PDF version you want in the box.
After some loading it will provide you a PDF file which you can download or save on your Google Docs account.
You can also install Add-on or bookmarlet on your web browser for easy and fast conversion of web pages, it also provides you button for your web site so that your users or readers can easily get PDF version of your web page.
One awesome tool provided by this web app and which is missing in other one is that it allows you to convert any webpage into PDF by just email. This feature is good for those who are in low network, to get converted by just email, all you have to do is send an email to :-
And in subject field write Convert and then on body write the URL of the page and then hit Send, within few minute you will get an email with and PDF attachment.
