ScreenGrab

Ever Needed to save an entire Web site as on image? Maybe you are a Web site designer working on a portfolio? Maybe you are just a random surfer with way too much time on his or her hands. No mater what the reason is, the ScreenGrab extension for Firefox should get the job done for you. You can save the entire page as an image, just the visible portion, or the browser window.

Firefox Screencap Project

I am always interested in seeing what type of projects people are starting up surrounding everybody’s favorite browser, Firefox. Chris sent this one my way, and I do have to say it is pretty interesting.

So, I’ve decided to start a little project. It’s officially called The Firefox Screencap Project. The aim is to get Firefox users to take a screencap of their Firefox. Here’s what you do: take a screencap of your browser and submit it to me at katyggls at yahoo dot com, along with a short description of what’s going on in your Firefox, including a list of the extensions you have installed, the name of the theme you’re currently using, and anything else you want us to know about how you run Firefox. Include a link to your blog or webpage, and I’ll post your screencap, your description and a link to your blog here at Kate’s Rambling’s And Wanderings.

I am going to send in my screenshots as soon as I can get them done. I think you should do the same. Seeing how other folks are using Firefox might even persuade you to try something new. Check out more about the project over at Kate’s Rambling’s and Wanderings.

Firefox 2 Alpha 3 Review

The folks over at Mozilla Links have a nice in-depth look at the new Firefox 2 Alpha 3 release. Instead of touching on all the things already covered before, they only focus on things that are new to this alpha 3 release. It is very interesting to read through if you are not brave enough to install the newest release yourself, just yet.

Firefox 2 Screenshots – New Features

Here are some of the new features coming to Firefox 2 Alpha 1. There are about six features previewed here, so give it a look. One feature I am really happy to see is the “close tab” button on each tab you have open.

Enhanced tabs
At first blush, the changes are not dramatic. But spend a little time with the browser, and you’ll notice subtle enhancements, such as adding little Xs to close specific tabbed browsing pages.

History menu
A History drop-down menu has been added to the toolbar alongside File, Edit, and View.

Go Places
Places is a new feature that resembles the Internet Explorer sidebar, allowing you to control Bookmarks, RSS subscriptions, and History.

Search history
With the new MozStorage system, you can now execute a search query of your browser history to find pages you may have visited 100 Web pages ago.

Improved RSS
In Firefox 2, as you click a page’s RSS icon, the feeds are added to a toolbar, and drop-down menus display the latest choices and the option to open all current feeds in individual tabs.

There you have it.  What do you think of Firefox 2 so far?
