Best Screen Grabs Come From FireShot

I’m back to using FireShot. This extension that allows you to take screenshots of what is inside your browser window enticed me to no end when it first came out – but with it’s lack of features I had to let it go. Here is a little more about the extension just in case you missed it the first time around…

What is FireShot and Why Do I Need It?

FireShot is a Firefox extension that creates screenshots of web pages. Unlike other extensions, this plugin provides a set of editing and annotation tools, which let users quickly modify captures and insert text and graphical annotations. Such functionality will be especially useful for web designers, testers and content reviewers.

FireShot in Action

Some of these newest features include:

  • Screenshot can be uploaded to server for resizing, commenting and blogging.
  • Added Undo/Redo feature
  • Added “Resume editing” option
  • Line width can be specified
  • Improved page extents detection mechanism (now supports GMail, E-Bay and other frame-based sites)
  • Improved memory management routines and error handling messages.
  • Added MS Outlook support
  • Working folder can be set up and periodically erased.

As you can see there is even more to love here. More now than ever before! Give the FireShot extension another shot. It is the perfect compainion for anybody who works with screen grabs a lot.
