Yeah. It is even worth re-reading manuals from time to time as you use
the corresponding tool. With growing experience, many initially
unnoticed features can be discovered and used efficiently.

.html version of the current page is always available to userscripts via
$QUTE_HTML variable.

I use it in my capture package:

Since you have access to the html file, you can pass it to any app in
your system. For example, you might convert the page to any other format
with pandoc or parse it with beautifulsoap in python. However, the file
will not contain the multimedia content - only bare html.

Best,
