There are quiet a few people out there whose line of work involves capturing screenshots of webpages (graphic designers, for instance). Now, there may be a lot of extensions for desktop browsers that let you capture the entire length of a webpage but the same functionality is rare for mobile platforms, which is what makes Web Scroll Capture
an excellent addition to the iTunes App Store. The app lets you take screenshots of whole webpages, from top to bottom, while browsing on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
scholarly or academic research articles? If you're a student, for instance, finding the right research paper for your final year project can be a pain. While some papers are provided for free, often access to research papers is restricted in one way or the other. You might not be able to find the actual source, download it as a PDF, or it might simply be paid. Publication Finder
, a Chrome extension, annotates digital library web pages with direct links to research publications, direct download links to PDFs and a search option. A Google Scholar
toolbar is added to the top of these webpages. It is quite a handy tool for finding research papers online while browsing popular digital libraries.
If you are a frequent user of Firefox, and need speedier access to your favorite websites, then you may want to check out Desktop
. Desktop is a Firefox add-on that allows you to set web pages as thumbnails or widgets in the new tab page. You can place them anywhere on the page by drag & drop, and also create sub-folders. The layout you create will be displayed in every new tab you open. Visual effects can be applied by setting a background image for the new tab page in Firefox.
A lot of people save web pages to their local systems for many reasons, like useful articles meant for offline reading, or for quickly referencing information when needed. With bookmarks and cloud sync, saving a web page to your PC might make little sense, and is probably something you’d only do for a particular project or something you’re researching on. The main problem with saving pages is that while the page itself is saved, you do not have the actual URL referenced even if you can tell what website the page is from. Saved From URL
is Firefox add-on that adds the URL of any saved web page as an HTML comment to the very start of the page itself.
Google Maps Colorizr
is a web app that lets you conveniently convert your HEX RGB colors to the HSL colors used by Google Maps. Using this neat web app, you can render color-customized Google Maps highlighting your areas of interest in different color schemes. The app has a Feature
option with a drop down menu which consists of multiple regions and landscapes. For each feature, you can enter a different HEX color code that will render that particular feature in the color of your choice.
Do you wish to print a webpage with only the relevant information you want? Print Edit
is a Firefox add-on that can help you get rid of all the unwanted content such as advertisements, side bars and blank pages when you need to print a web page. It easily allows you to edit the webpage in print preview, and lets you select sections of a web page that you want to format, hide or delete before printing.
Firefox extensions are about as powerful and useful as they come but with Firefox on a rapid release cycle and the fact that extension compatibility with newer versions isn’t guaranteed, there is always a chance that the extension you’re in love with today might not be around in six weeks. PDF & Print with Joliprint
is a Firefox extension that allows you to convert web pages to PDF files, save them to Google Docs, Create eBooks out of your Google Reader news items and ReadItLater lists.
Firefox lets you do a lot of things, you can write up and run an extension that will add a tiled background of yawning kittens if you like and Firefox will be cool with it. Where it lends so much freedom to its users and freedom is perhaps a basis for its popularity, it also restricts you from doing some of the more essential functions like opening files directly in Firefox instead of downloading them (which is normal in Chrome). Open in Browser is a Firefox extension that adds an option for opening files in Text, Web Page, Page Source and XML formats or as images in the download file dialog box. The extension allows supported files to open in a browser window as opposed to downloading it, however, it doesn’t convert one file in to another and allow you to view it in your browser. Read More
If you’re looking for an advanced WYSIWYG HTML 5 web editor for Mac, chances of you coming across paid HTML and CSS elements editors are high. Instead of relying on multiple small tools to insert and edit the latest HTML web elements, you could use BlueGriffon
for Mac. Back in January, we featured a review on BlueGrfiffon for Windows
, and today we will look into features of its Mac counterpart.
As we browse the internet, we often come across information on certain web pages that we want to save for later reference. While there are tools out there like Instapaper, Read It Later and Readability that allow you to do this, they essentially save the entire page for the purpose, and not all of them have Android apps available. What if you only want to capture a certain part of a web page for later reference rather than a full web page, and that too on your Android device? We've got just the right app for you! 123Clip
is a free, handy tool for Android that allows you to select or “clip” portions of a web page and save them to your SD card for offline viewing. Clips can include any number of images and/or blocks of text selected by the user or even the entire web page. Unlike in regular saved web pages, the HTML blocks in these clips are arranged in a one-column, inline format more suitable for mobile viewing – particularly useful when it comes to web pages that don’t have mobile variants.
Back in June I wrote two ways to Print Any Part Or Section Of Web Page Without Ads, but if you are using Internet Explorer then there is a much easier way. We at AddictiveTips are huge fans of Firefox browser, but we also use Internet Explorer when necessary.
