SUMMARY: Take screen captures of entire web pages viewed in Google Chrome, then add highlights to focus on important elements and share the captures via Facebook.
Looking to capture screenshots while browsing the web in Google Chrome, and want to print and share them with friends and coworkers? While many screen capture extensions exist, you may wish to consider Google's own Screen Capture tool.
Features include visible web tab or freeform region capture, plus the ability on many pages to capture the entire page with the screen capture tool handling horizontal and vertical scrolling (the author tested this on a couple of pages with good results - your mileage may vary with especially large pages).
Images may be edited after capture - you can highlight parts of the page, redact information with a solid or blur filter, add your own text, and draw lines and arrows. Images can be copied to the clipboard, printed, and saved as .PNG files. Or, share your images via a variety of services including Picasa Web and Facebook.
