I'm looking for a solution to save a single web page or a section of it as a vector graphic in my latex document. Do you know a tool, trick or service which helps to do this?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
I suppose you mean a single web page, not a whole web site!
Perhaps you could print to a PDF file from your browser, and either
Of course, the problem with printing is you'll get output that looks like it was meant to be printed. Normally that's what you want after all...
If you go into your browser's print settings, you can instruct it to print background colors and images, and turn off header / footer text - that's the easy part. However, it won't get around anything the page itself does to improve the printed output: for instance, Wikipedia has a custom set of styles that are used when printing, to remove superfluous text and graphics (the header, sidebar, edit/expand links, etc).
You might prefer something like this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/save-as-pdf/

Use wkhtmltopdf as Giles suggests above in a comment. It uses webkit to render your page as a vector PDF from the command line.
(I'm promoting this to a top level answer since this jewel is likely to go unnoticed in the mess of comments).
