The best part of this tool is its ability to take a screenshot of an entire web page in Safari, and guess what? Through the screenshots editor tool, you can save the web page’s screenshots as PDF instead of PNG.

This feature is quite useful in many cases when you’ve to take a full-page screenshot, but I do not consider as ideal. Firstly, it only allows you to take screenshots on Apple’s very own Safari browser and does not supports any other browsers like Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.

Secondly, it does not allow you to save the screenshot in image format but in PDF. It would be best if it allows saving the Full Page screenshot as an image.
