Windows 2000/XP/Vista, Adobe AIR 3.0
April 29, 2008
WebKut is an AIR application that allows you to capture Web pages, or parts of them in a very simple way. It provides you 3 capture options: the entire page, the current view, or only a selection.
As an example of cross-platform Adobe AIR development, WebKut, a free screenshot application, is a cool-looking experiment. As a functional screenshot tool, it's a little cursory. It does deserve points for originality. Unlike most OS-specific screen-capture tools, WebKut operates wholly within the application environment. The simple, sleek, contained interface slices the process into two steps and one set of extras, all navigable from the main interface.
We liked being able to search Google within the app if we weren't sure about the URL, but disappointed we couldn't bookmark pages for later reference. Similarly, while we appreciated choosing among three capture modes, the sparse settings were limited to file type, image ratio and quality, and choosing the folder for output. Previewing and editing images within the app should be essential, not absent, and WebKut offers no prompt to title the file uniquely. Windows users accustomed to extensive options in freeware capture apps like Gadwin PrintScreen will especially find WebKut's output management and narrow Web-only focus lacking, though the snappy interface is worthy of admiration.
