    FireFox Screen Shot - Does any other offer that?
    Firefox added a feature a while back that I have started to use a lot and I miss an equivalent on the Brave browser I'm trying out.

    I was just wondering if any other browser offers that Firefox capability.

    The Firefox screen shot is accessed vis right click with the mouse, at the very bottom of the contextual menu.

    When one clicks that one gets the option of taking a screen shot of the complete web page or selecting the portion one wants to include in the screen shot.

    The key thing for me is that this feature will take a screen shot of the complete web page, no matter how big it is, even if most of it is off screen (and one would have to scroll to see it).
    The screen shot is saved as a png image and if you download it, it ends up in my download folder (not on the desktop, thank God)

    The only option somewhat similar that I used before was to either use the print menu and save the web page as a pdf, but more often than not, using this method images were missing, the text had moved or a line was missing - the conversion to pdf just did not work....or
    Save the web page as a web page - that way, with Firefox and most other browsers, one ends up with two files, an html file and an associated folder, which the browser assembles again, or with Safari asingle file with an Apple unique extension which most other browsers (and Windows systems) probably can't read.

    A png image of a web page is pretty much ideal because it can be read by almost any device.

    Go to the page you want to screenshot
    Click the three dots in the address bar
    Click Take a Screenshot in the menu
    Select a screenshot option
    Click Download to save your screenshot.

    If the shoe fits, buy it in every colour.

    Sue, can you help me? What browser? I don't see any dots in the address bar in Safari, nor any menu.

    I have the same question.
    Of the browsers I have in my dock, only Chrome uses three dots, but there is no 'screen shot' in that menu

    Still good to know.

    I always used the contextual menu with Firefox for the screen shot, but it's good to know that option is also available via the three dots in the address bar.
