Q. Why does this security warning appear when I install the extension?
A. This is a standard security warning that appears before every installation of most popular extensions in the Google gallery.
Q. What is the significance of this security warning that appears on my screen?
A. Every Google Chrome extension is activated inside a sandbox ? and can only be activated with commands that are chosen by the Chrome staff. This enables the browser to supervise the activities of every extension and to limit its capabilities. For example as of today the extensions do not have access to the file system of the surfer.
In order for the Webpage Screenshot extension to work properly you need to use the command CaptureVisibleTab (which is documented in the Google development site) which is designated for taking webpage screenshots. When this command exists in the extension the Google system will automatically display a security warning.
Q. What is the quality of the screenshot?
A. The extension uses the maximum capability of the browser in order to produce the screenshot in JPG or PNG format. The Google staff is constantly upgrading the quality of the screenshot and the extension as well. In the near future there will be support in PNG/JPG.
Q. Why can't I trap Flash files?
A. This is a well known problem and we do not have control over it. There is a bug in Google's browser that hides the Flash when you take a webpage screenshot.
Q. Occasionally I am unable to save files that are larger than 2MB, why?
A. We fix it on the last version. Only out extension can save images larger that 2MB.
Q. Why am I unable to take a screenshot of certain sites?
A. We are trying to make the extension work on all sites. When we come across a site that is giving problems we fix it and distribute a new version of the extension.
