FireShot - Browser plug-in for capturing web pages
Review by on
In certain cases, the need to take a screenshot may disrupt your workflow, especially if you need to run a specific application first. The same thing can happen when you find something interesting on the Internet and you wish to save it for later or share it with a friend, but in this particular situation you can use FireShot to make everything much smoother. It gives you the possibility of capturing entire web pages or part of them directly from your web browser, without having to run a separate application. Furthermore, FireShot places various tools at your disposal, for inserting annotations, sharing the screenshots and more.

Essentially, FireShot is a browser plug-in, for Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird and Seamonkey. The installer lets you decide where to install this extension. It takes only a few seconds to complete the installation process, after which you have to restart the targeted browsers. FireShot comes in Lite and Pro editions. You can try the Pro version, free of charge, for 30 days, without any restrictions, after which you can either pay for it or switch to the free version.

Once installed, FireShot will add a new button on your browser's user interface. Clicking this button will display a series of options, for capturing the currently displayed web page in various ways. As previously mentioned, you can decide to capture an entire web page, from top to bottom, in a single screenshot, but you can also capture only the visible part, a selected area or the browser window. What's more, FireShot allows you to choose what to do with the screenshot, after it captures the web page. Screenshots can be loaded into the application's own editor or into an external one, saved in various formats, including PDF, printed, copied to the clipboard, sent by email or uploaded to one of many social networks.

FireShot's built-in editor includes a good selection of tools, for inserting shapes, images, drawing and making other annotations. Loaded screenshots can be cropped and resized as well. You can also find the aforementioned output methods on the editor's toolbar. If you take multiple snapshots, you will find them in a column, on the left side of the editor's interface, regardless of what output method you choose the first time.

Another useful feature is the possibility of watermarking the snapshots. They can be applied automatically, according to various settings, which you can make in the editor's general settings menu. Furthermore, you may create a template, for naming your snapshots automatically and make other fine adjustments, in the same menu.

Pros:
You may capture an entire web page, from top to bottom, in a single snapshot. FireShot comes with a useful editor, which you can use to insert annotations. Also, the application places many output options at your disposal, including uploading to various social networks.

Cons:
The Lite version is quite limited, compared to the Pro edition.

You can forget about traditional screenshot applications when it comes to capturing web pages, because you can do it in half the time with FireShot, due to its clean, simple and straightforward functionality.

You can download FireShot free here.
