How do you save a web page as .mht in Chrome?

I have Chromium 18. It's supposed to be possible but I can't figure out how...

Viewing and creating MHTML files in current versions of Google Chrome is supported by toggling the "Save Page as MHTML" option on the chrome://flags page.

However, enabling this experimental option disables saving pages as HTML-only or HTML Complete files. From the chrome://flags page:

Save Page as MHTML Mac, Windows, Linux
Disables saving pages as HTML-only or HTML Complete; enables saving pages only as MHTML: a single text file containing HTML and all sub-resources.

As of July 2013 there are still lots of short comings with this chrome flag. I'd recommend Vinay's answer if your web pages have complex content –  ecoe Jun 9 at 0:08

Nope. That story is incorrect. While Chrome is capable of viewing mhtml files, it still doesn't save webpages to that format.

Yes it is a pain in the rear. But you can use AutoHotkey to read a list of links and save them to mhtml :) AFAIK, this is easiest in IE, since no other browser makes it easy for AutoHotKey to check if the webpage has fully loaded.

Also FireFox has an extension for saviong in MHT: UNMHT - in case someone is interested in. –  Vyger Mar 20 at 19:38

You can save it as MHTML file by using "SAVE AS MHTML" extension available in chrome web store which will capture the entire site to a compressed file.

Supported by Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome.

I can't find such an extension. Can you give us the link? –  slhck Dec 2 '12 at 14:32

You can install free WizBrother SaveAs Plus plugin

By the way, it supports most of the web browsers, such as, IE, Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, and Opera etc.

This is actually brilliant - nothing before have I found to work on saving complex gmail inbox web pages - this does it, which I find quite incredible! Before that, the best method I found, oddly, was Opera (pre-chromium!) for saving complex webpages with all objects and dependencies in tact. MIND YOU this plugin does take a while to save a page (at least the complex gmail inbox home page I tried) - AND it only worked by saving in IE, then opening in IE - but boy is it worth it if you have an important complex page to archive with FULL formatting in tact! –  foregon Dec 17 '13 at 13:50

The "Save Page as MHTML" option (in Chrom://flags) does NOT allow you to view MHTML documents. It only allows (requires) you to save web pages as MHTML. (That is, if you enable it, you lose the ability to save a page as HTML with associated folder of related files. You can ONLY save as MHTML.) MHTML documents on a website are still downloaded, not viewed in Chrome.
