Paulo Cereda has developed the awesome TeXPrinter for precisely this purpose. It's a Java application with a very clean interface that takes a question ID and saves the question thread as a PDF or a TeX file. There's a video explaining the usage.
This would be very similar to requesting MathJax support, which has been declined here as we're more interested in the code rather than the output. That doesn't mean the output is not important, of course.
Moreover, many of the code posted by users here contain errors which they don't know how to correct. Or, it contains customizations that are found ...
Every site from the StackExchange network has a mobile version. And that includes our beloved community as well. :)
According to the Powers That Be:
If we detect a whitelisted mobile device user agent, you will automatically receive an optimized mobile view of any Stack Exchange on your smartphone.

When you hover a code section (<pre><code>) there is a small </> sign that appears on the top right corner of the script. You click it and voilà !
The code is available on this Gist.
How to use it :

You should see something similar if you hover the mouse over your name. For example, I see
Following the edit: On StackExchange 2.0 sites (like here) things work differently to 1.0 sites like StackOverflow. Reputation appears by your name and updates automatically (some HTML5 magic, I assume). Responses, new badges and so on are handled by the 'universal ...
The Stack Overflow Extras (SOX) script provides this functionality through a very minimal icon in the top-right corner of a code display:
I have the script activated via Tampermonkey in Chrome, but it is supported in other browsers as well.
As @paul-gessler has commented, this has been asked several times before, and the community of TeX.SE is generally against such a feature, mostly because of problems with erroneous code, compatibility, or output that requires multiple files (like bibliographies).
However, I am strongly in favour of this feature, if it is implemented with a separate syntax. ...
