Collector's Note My favorite of all screen grabbing software - uses the Mozilla engine to render a full page extremely fast, then you can go back at a later date to edit. Also own commercial Snagit, but this gets used more often. The original version was no longer being supported by the author and this one was released at the very end of 2011 I'm the 11th installer so early testing but so far seems to be working fine.
YSlow analyzes web pages and suggests ways to improve their performance based on a set of rules for high performance web pages.

Collector's Note This is an extra - for those times when you just know you saw a great picture, and can't remember, or for finding videos ;)
Use PDF Download to do whatever you like with PDF files on the Web. Regain control and eliminate browser problems, view PDFs directly in Firefox as HTML, and use the all-new Web-to-PDF toolbar to save and share Web pages as high-quality PDF files.
Collector's Note I download PDFs a lot, and it is annoying when you click a link and discover it is a PDF, and it tries to load in the browser.
