In Windows, Mac and Linux we have default screen capturing tools, but there will not be any special features or editor in the application. It simply captures the screen and let you crop the unwanted areas. Many free third party apps have plenty of features and has an inbuilt editor to instantly edit the screenshots. Also, many free screen capturing tools have options equal to the professional tools. So, you don’t need to spend money for a good screen capturing tool in your device. Today I’ve come with a list of free screen capturing tools for Chrome. The list is as follows.
Clipular is one of the popular Screen capturing tools for Chrome. It is more than a screen capturing extension, which lets you take screenshots and keep that as bookmarks in your browser. Instead of saving text links in your bookmarks, you can capture the entire web page or the part you need and save it in your browser. Also, you can share the screenshots to your social accounts right from the extension. When you take a screenshot, it will also keep a record of source links, page titles, etc. Screenshots will be automatically saved in your account in Clipular.com.
