I don't think there is any such procedure. However, you can "save" a webpage for offline use in any browser!

Most of the Chrome apps on ChromeOS and Extensions on browser requires one time syncing in order to keep the content offline. In such process they keep a local copy to store the content on hard disk. So you can access it any time you want. The same principle applies to addons on Android too.

Here are some of the extensions(for chrome) and Apps for (ChromeOS) that allows you to read the webpage offline.

1. Instapaper - This addon helps you view the content in minimal possible way. It reduces the bandwidth by reducing the file size and minimizing the images that you don't need. So this way less of your bandwidth is spent.

2. Pocket - This addon works similar to Instapaper but it allows more content to be stored. Video, images, XL file etc. You can also save the content for permanent library if you have pro version. Regular syncing required for fetching new content.

3. Read It - This extension works on Chrome OS and browser. It allows you to read the content offline. It doesn't offer anything more than that. It focuses on reading the text based content.

4. KlipMe - This extenion works on Chrome and Kindle. It allows you to clip content from web and browser. You can read the content and view it offline. Syncing with cloud allows you to update annotations etc.

These are some of the extensions that you can use on Chrome to read the content offline. Do note that there are some of the windows apps like HTTrack which lets you download websites for offline reading.
