How do I select-all and copy a web page of text on iOS?

Sometimes on my phone I need to select and copy a big (>800kb) json file (and subsequently paste it) from Chrome or Safari. The phone can actually handle this operation except for the act of selecting the text on the webpage. This is easy to do with a keyboard attached (ctrl-a) but I haven’t found a way to do it with only the touch interface. The file is too long to select and drag.

Is there a hidden way to select-all using the software keyboard, a shortcut, or an accessibility feature?
