A minimal, ad-free screen recorder in your browser

#2 Product of the DayApril 27, 2020
With more of us working from home than ever before, there's a growing need to show someone what's on your screen. That's why I built Screen Recorder! It's a modern and minimal Progressive Web App. 100% Free. Private. No Watermarks. No Ads. No Recording Limits.

I'll bite, could I ask whats better about this vs loom, screencastify etc ? I'm a BIIIG screen recorded, remote team across multiple timezones, so always looking for ways to improve my work flows :)
@veebuv Great questions! One of the main differences if you're comparing it to products like Loom and Screencastify is those are both chrome extensions (Loom also has a desktop app yes but still). Chrome extensions are great for some but definitely have their limitations and privacy concerns. For example, they only work in Chrome and now the new Microsoft Edge browser based on Chromium (there will never be Firefox or Safari support). The privacy aspect is that chrome extensions are in fact an extension of your browser running in the background and most of them need full access to view whatever your web browser is looking at at all times they are running. The other main difference with Screen Recorder is it's free (it'll remain that way, I promise) and there is no requirement to make an account. "Just go to the website and hit record" was kind of the goal of the product. Let me know if you have any other questions! :)
@veebuv The other thing I'd like to call out in addition to it just being a website is it's a PWA meaning you can install it to your desktop with the click of a button in most modern browsers (like Chrome or Microsoft Edge). There's no bulk download process necessary. Just click the "+" install button in the top right of your browser's url bar.
Wow, simple, clean, no distractions. πŸ‘
@aditya_kandari Thank you so much for the compliment! I really did want to design it in a minimalist way so there is nothing getting in the way of getting a quick and easy recording.
Hey fellow Hunters! My name is Jaydan and I'm a designer and developer based out of Boise, ID! With more of us working from home than ever due to COVID-19 and social distancing I quickly realized how much of a need there was for a simple screen recorder on the web. That's why I built Screen Recorder (https://screenrecorderapp.com) Although there are great chrome extensions and desktop apps out there I've found nothing really beats the simplicity of a website. It's also a PWA meaning it's installable on Chrome OS, Mac OS, Windows, and Linux. I'm offering it for free. Yes, FREE. No ads. No watermarks. No limits on how long you can record. Just select the screen, application, or window you want and hit record. If you appreciate the product please share it with anyone else you know would enjoy it and if you really love it I have a Buy Me a Coffee page @ https://www.buymeacoffee.com/jaydan Happy Hunting!
Niicee! Looks very useful. I can't wait when I try it :) Congratulations!
Would be great as a Chrome extension πŸ™‚
@chrisbuttenham It's definitely a possibility! Although I did want to emphasize the fact that is a PWA. Meaning you can actually install it your desktop and access it from your App dock, desktop, or applications folder. Just click the "+" install icon in the top right of your browser's url bar (in Edge and Chrome right now). Thank you for the request though, I'll keep it in mind!
