Screengrab!

Author(s):




---------------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Since version 2.1, Screengrab is now fully compatible with WebExtensions (Firefox 55+) and Google Chrome
the latest XUL version for older versions of Firefox, SeaMonkey and PaleMoon is here:
https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/screengrab-fix-version/versions/0.99.12

Why Screengrab was remade for WebExtensions?

This is the inevitable change in Firefox - all Xul-addons will die out in Firefox 57

Original Screengrab! add-on by Andy M for Mozilla Firefox is abandoned March 21, 2010:
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/screengrab/

Does it mean its death? Of course not! It has been reborn! I brought it back to life!

What is Screengrab?

Screengrab! saves entire webpages as images. Just right-click on the page you want to grab and look in the "Screengrab" menu.
It will capture what you can see in the window, the entire page, just a selection, a particular frame... basically it saves webpages as images - either to a file, or to the clipboard, or upload to internet.

you do not need to restart the browser, just update the tab addons.mozilla.org

============
Starting with Firefox 56 inside the browser there is a native extension: Firefox Screenshots
Comparison of Screengrab! and Firefox Screenshots:

2. Image format:
Firefox Screenshots - only PNG
Screengrab! - PNG, JPG, BMP

3.
Firefox Screenshots - no hotkeys
Screengrab! - hotkeys

4.
Firefox Screenshots - no user text in filename
Screengrab! - user text in filename with templates

5.
Firefox Screenshots - one mode for capture full page
Screengrab! - simple mode and force mode
"Complete Page (forced mode)" for capture the pages created with div layers,
example: https://www.nab.com.au/ , http://mariemcdonald.ew.com/ , etc
"forced mode" uses a complicated algorithm and in some cases, the browser may be temporarily slowed down
You can try to save the entire page using Firefox Screenshots and compare the result

and a lot of other differences!
