    Page Capture Widget

    About Page Capture
    The Page Capture widget is the easiest and fastest way to take screenshot of web pages. No matter how long a page may be, the Page Capture widget will capture the entire page and save it to an image. Say “Good Bye!” to puzzling together multiple screenshots manually and let the Page Capture widget do all the work for you!

    - Captures entire web pages no matter how long they may scroll for.
    - Easy to use: type or paste a URL - hit Return or click the logo.
    - Uses Safari’s powerful and fast WebKit rendering engine.
    - Check for new versions by clicking the version displayed on the back.
    - Automatically resize the image (default is 50%).
    - Free!

    What’s New in this Version
    - Operation can be cancelled by clicking the spinner.
    - Check for new versions by clicking on the version displayed on the back.
    - Multiple instances allowed (each with their saved preferences restored.
    - Files named with same convention as Mac OS X’s screenshot utility.
    - Improvements to how URIs are handled.

    Here's a sample image of the MUG forums:

    Nice one. I like the scale feature. the only down side is you have to leave your browser and copy - paste the url.

    The one I'm using is screen grab for firefox.

    Allows you to copy or save:
    1. the whole window
    2. the whole page/frame
    3. visible portion or
    4. make a selection

    in jpg or png.

    just wanna share. :)

    For those who are having trouble with the widget, you may wanna try Paparazzi! It does pretty much the same thing. :)

    I finally got the widget to work. I was trying to paste the URL by double clicking using the two finger technique in the trackpad. Solved it by using command V.

    great! Alternatively, using firefox, you can go directly to the addOn's page and click "Add to Firefox".
