Web Clipper comparison: Chrome vs MS Edge on Washington Post

Recommended Posts

Chrome is my preferred browser but have discovered that Web Clipper on Chrome misses important content on the Washington Post. For example, on this particular story https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/06/14/ripple-effects-downturn-show-pandemics-early-economic-toll-was-just-beginning/, Web Clipper on Chrome does not include key information including the article date, the author, photo, photo text, or the first paragraph. Web Clipper on MS Edge captures this information.

Does anyone have a solution?

Hi.  Use Edge for clipping from the Post?  No clue as to why the content should differ,  but is this true for all clips, or just this page?

Do you mean the traditional Edge browser, or the new Edge (which is based on the open source Chromium engine) ?

The traditional Edge browser is discontinued by MS, so any issues will probably not be followed up.

Upon further examination it seems that the problem is common for both Chrome and Edge (I am running MS Edge Version 84.0.522.40 (Official build) (64-bit)).

Another example is this story where both Chrome and Edge miss the following info including the photo caption, author info, publication date, and first two paragraphs:

Pathei mathos — in suffering we learn. The words of the Greek tragedian Aeschylus continue to echo in my mind.

Our suffering today in America is finally teaching us that we need to fight covid-19 for real; we need to pursue not just mitigation — slowing the spread of disease — but suppression — getting back to near zero case incidence. But just because we grown-ups have had to learn from suffering doesn’t mean the kids should."


I appreciate that this is a user forum and appreciate any suggestions. I'll post elsewhere as well.
