    Great screenshot sharing tool

    +1 on CloudApp. The ability to record gifs and annotate screenshots makes it super useful. I like it best because it "just works." I like setting it to default "copy content" to my clipboard, so whenever I take a screenshot, it's easy to paste it right into slack.
    Super minimalistic and clean. Also uploads screenshots to the cloud quickly if you want.

    I've recommended CloudApp so many times and I'll do it so many more times because it's the best. Screenshots, recordings, creating GIFs... CloudApp does it all and makes it so ridiculously easy. I would happily do an infomercial demonstrating the ease of use, complete with overenthusiastic gesturing and yelling.

    Nimbus Screenshot and Screencast

    My favorite screenshot & annotation extension for Chrome

    Most of my screenshotting is of web UIs and Nimbus is the best Chrome extension I've used for this. Handles whole page, selected area of a page, cropping, manipulation, annotation and - bonus - records screencasts.

    Opera Neon

    A concept of tomorrow’s web browser you can play with today.

    It is not directly a screenshot tool, but the integrated screenshot function of Opera Neon is pretty amazing I think. I only use this since I installed the browser.

      I really likes the bubbles representing websites, the playful animations and the widget with playing videos, vertical toolbars optimize the use of space for 16:10 screens.

    Tried Recordit and its pretty neat. Love the functionality of uploading the screen-shot directly to the web as a .gif.

    Awesome Screenshot (iOS)

    Screenshot & annotate w/ this extension for Safari on iOS 8

    I prefer using Awesome Screenshot because it allows me to quickly annotate a screenshot. Alternatively, I use the native MacOS app for screenshot (CMD+Shift+4 for snippets) and automatically placing them in a Dropbox folder to share with friends or coworkers.

    CloudApp Annotate

    Annotate screenshots right from your Mac's menu bar!

    CloudApp just launched Annotate, which lets you screenshot/GIF/Video record right form your menu bar, and now you can add Skitch-style annotations as well -- super convenient.
