    doesn't do the whole page.

    just what you can see (i.e doesnt scroll down etc)

    Agree. If I need a snapshot of a site I just go full-screen (F11), print screen, paste, scroll, print screen, paste and line them up. I don't have to do it often enough to merit an add on.

    no because i don't want to have to edit out the browser, having the browser in the screen shot looks like shit and unprofessional, using the ff add on and what not does not include the web browser

    I use screengrab! (firefox addon) and like it: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1146

    It's cool because it makes it really fast/easy to get and save complete page, visible page or just a selection (I used selection all the time!). You can also use it to do the same choice of selection but just copy the image to your clipboard to paste directly into photoshop, for example.


    Abduction! looks like it has a use too....



    not related, but kind of, a couple other cool firefox plugins that come in handy with website development/design:
    measureit = (super easy way to measure things onscreen in the browser. Like maybe you need to know how large of a space is to find the right ad banner.
    colorzilla = adds an "eye dropper" to your status bar that you can click to find the color of anything on the page. Gives RGB and hex values and such which you can right click to copy to clipboard ready to paste into adsense or photoshop or whatever. Makes it easy to match up colors fast.

    Yeah I use Colorzilla heaps.. the new version is awesome.

    I also use Wappalyzer to check what scripts the site is running (forum software, blog software, analytics, etc etc) at a glance.. another good one.
