jkayani and rojer Fix entire page capture (#45)
* Fixes 44 (entire page capture functionality)

This was broken because the extension wasn't properly causing the browser to scroll (`document.body.scroll*` instead of `document.documentElement.scroll*`), so that it could take captures all the way down the page.

The edit page was also incorrectly placing captures tiled along the x-axis b/c it was ignoring the device pixel ratio.

* Fixed scrollbar removal from screenshots

Awesome Screenshot Minus

This extension was created because I liked the original Awesome Screenshot extension by Diigo but could not trust it not to sell me out. It has now been removed from the webstore, reportedly for user privacy violations -- all true. I found a lot of questionable stuff inside.

If you are familiar with the original Awesome Screenshot, you'll feel right at home.

Here are the things I added, in addition to removing all the junk:

++ Desktop capture - used to be a "premium feature", I re-implemented it myself. ++ GDrive URL shortening - short "" urls for screenshots uploaded to GDrive. ++ (coming soon) Touch screen support.

** Less intrusive (minimum amount of code is injected into pages).

Get it in store: here

Beta version (more frequent updates, but less stable): here

Note on permissions:

  • all_urls: Required for shortcut-initiated captures to work, otherwise could be replaced with activeTab.
  • tabs: Required to get tab title and URL, could conceivably be replaced with additional round-trip to and from injected content script, but script injection itself already requires extensive permissions, so that's going backwards.
  • identity: For GDrive uploads.
  • To display account name where the file is uploaded.
  • storage: To store options.
  • desktopCapture, notifications: for capturing desktop screenshots.
