Most users end up holding their head in frustration when the need to grab a screenshot arises,especially in case of web pages.The process involves several steps and requires  more than just one application.The common method of grabbing screenshot is to press the [Print Scrn] button on the keyboard and open an image editing software like MS Paint or IrfanView and pasting it.Later processing involves  cropping the unwanted region from the image using image enhancing tools.This process gets even lengthier when one needs to capture an entire page.Since monitors do not  support astronomical resolutions,it isn’t always possible to capture an entire page .Instead users  have to take snapshots of different parts of the page and then stitch these images together to get a comprehensive view  of the entire page.Firefox has a helpful add-on that can minimize your problems by quite measure.It’s called ‘Screengrab’.
