Abduction!, An extension to take screenshots in Firefox

Abduction!, An extension to take screenshots in Firefox

On many occasions, either to report an error we encountered in an application or to illustrate a manual, it is common that we have to resort to some kind of tool to take a snapshot of your screen or window currently open. While this type of snapshots we can perform with some of the features available on your operating system, in the case of taking of your browser we can resort to the odd extension and get additional features. One of the best known in Chrome Screen Capture, which occasionally have spoken, and in the case of Firefox, if you do not have a tool of this kind, perhaps Abduction! can lend a hand.

Abduction! is a extension that allows you to capture the contents of the browser tab that we open. The operation is quite simple and, to some extent, similar to Screen Capture for Chrome since it can take a screenshot of an area of the screen (making a selection), the visible part of the window (we see without moving the scroll ) or the entire contents (including the area that we see and we can access by moving the scroll bar).

To use all you have to do is click the right mouse button on the web to bring up the options menu and find the option labeled “Save page as image”. Once we click on that option will get a small toolbar with three buttons that will help us adjust the selection and save it as an image (PNG format).

If we were to compare it with the extension Screen Capture that Google developed for Chrome, this extension is missing the option to copy the captured image and take, for example, an image editor or insert it directly into a document without having to go for the intermediate stage of storing the image on your hard drive.

In any case, Abduction! an extension is worth installing and have on hand because, surely, can help us do our work.
