How Can I View a Webarchive File?

By Tammy Clevenger

A file with the file extension of WEBARCHIVE is an Apple Safari Web archive file. Safari Web archive files are similar to Microsoft MHTML files. Web archive files contain graphic images, HTML code and script data, just as MHTML files do. Open and view Web archive files offline using the Safari Web browser. In addition, most versions of Internet Explorer will open and view Safari Web archive files as well.

Things You'll Need

Open the Safari or Internet Explorer Web browser.

Click the “File” option on the top navigation bar and then click “Open.” The File Open dialog box opens.

Step 3
