One of the nicest features of Furl (if you don’t use it you might want to check it out – in a nutshell: it allows you to save and annotate any webpage keeping it accessible even when the original is gone) is that you can download the archive of your furled pages.

The only problem is that the filenames of your pages are rather insignificant (80000/1/1/80000_1761411.html).

Here is one easy way to create a locally browsable view of your Furl archive:

(1) grab and extract the Zip archive of your saved documents
(2) grab the Furl XML format for saved documents and change two lines
(3) grab a XSLT stylesheet (don’t worry)
(4) open in browser

in Furl go to My Tools – Export (see the pic above);
right click Zip archive of your saved documents and save it to your disk;
extract the files;

still in My Tools – Export (left-) click on Furl XML format and save the result (which will look odd) as furl.xml to your disk;
open it and change the first two lines from

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="no" ?>
<!DOCTYPE archive SYSTEM "">


<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="furl2html.xsl" type="text/xsl" ?>

right click this XSLT stylesheet and save it as furl2html.xsl;

open furl.xml in your browser (there is one caveat: the browser should be able to handle XSLT. Firefox does, Safari doesn’t, I’m not sure with IE.)

you should see a beautiful list of all your furled pages which you can take on the road or wherever you go ;)
