As a blogger I often use a screen capture program to grab screenshots to use in my postings. Most screen capture programs I use are locally installed Windows programs; however, lately I have been using the Google Chrome browser extension called Awesome Screenshot (Capture and Annotate) to grab screenshots to post in Scribefire which is the editor I use to draft my posts.
One of my goals in my blog drafting and posting is to solely find ways to use my browser to do all the work, without relying on locally installed software. Using Awesome Screenshot (Capture and Annotate) and Scribefire together, which is also a browser extension, is bringing me closer to that goal.
One thing I want to point out about Awesome Screenshot (Capture and Annotate) is that it is one of the highest rated browser extensions, with approximately 1.3 million users, at the Chrome Web Store, which speaks highly of this application.
