Screengrab by Andy M

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 590 reviews

Screengrab! saves webpages as images... but not for new versions of Firefox.

FF changes too fast and I don't have the time to maintain it anymore. Bugs have developed that I am not in a position to investigate.

Therefore, Screengrab is EOL.
Collector's Note Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.
