Privacy, simplified.

At DuckDuckGo, we believe the Internet shouldn’t feel so creepy, and getting the privacy you deserve online should be as simple as closing the blinds.

Our extension provides the privacy essentials you need to seamlessly take control of your personal information, no matter where the Internet takes you:

  • Escape Advertising Tracker Networks — Our Privacy Protection will block all the hidden third-party trackers we can find, exposing the major advertising networks tracking you over time, so that you can track who’s trying to track you.

• Increase Encryption Protection — We force sites to use an encrypted connection where available, protecting your data from prying eyes, like ISPs.

• Search Privately — You share your most personal information with your search engine, like your financial, medical, and political questions. What you search for is your own business, which is why DuckDuckGo search doesn’t track you. Ever.

• Decode Privacy Policies — We’ve partnered with Terms of Service Didn’t Read to include their scores and labels of website terms of service and privacy policies, where available.

Our extension also adds a toolbar icon that shows you a Privacy Grade rating when you visit a website (A-F). This rating lets you see how protected you are at a glance, dig into the details to see who we caught trying to track you, and learn how we enhanced the underlying site’s privacy measures. The Privacy Grade is scored automatically based on the prevalence of hidden tracker networks, encryption availability, and website privacy practices.

Too many people believe you simply can’t expect privacy on the Internet. We’re fighting to change that, and have made it our mission to set a new standard of trust online. Install DuckDuckGo and take back your privacy!

Full Page Screen Capture

Installed while Firefox has a built-in Screen Shot Tool to capture an entire web page. This feature is still not available within Chrome. This is where the full page screen capture comes in handy. It will auto scroll an entire web page giving you a screen shot that’s doable in a single image on the page.

You’d like to capture with just one click of the full page screen capture icon it will take a full page screenshot. When it’s done you can save it as a PDF which is what I prefer or save it as a PNG file.

Google Chrome Integration - Top 10 Most Useful Chrome Extensions 2020
Google Chrome Integration

Overview 

Capture a screenshot of your current page in entirety and reliably—without requesting any extra permissions!

The simplest way to take a full page screenshot of your current browser window. Click on the extension icon (or press Alt+Shift+P), watch the extension capture each part of the page, and be transported to a new tab of your screenshot where you can download it as an image or PDF or even just drag it to your desktop.

*No bloat, no ads, no unnecessary permissions, just a simple way to turn a full web page into an image.*

The advanced screen capture technology handles complex pages—including inner scrollable elements as well as embedded iframes—unlike any other extension. If you encounter an issue, please report it via the customer support flag icon on the capture page, so we can improve the extension for you and everyone else who uses it.

In order to screenshot the entire page it must scroll to each visible part, so please be patient as it quickly assembles all the pieces. For the rare scenario where your page is too large for Chrome to store in one image, it will let you know and split it up into images in separate tabs.

Export your result to PNG, JPEG, or various PDF paper sizes—all configurable from the extension’s options.

*NEW:* crop, annotate, and add your favorite emojis to any screenshot with the new editor!

This extension is run by an independent developer. View the original open source project on github: https://github.com/mrcoles/full-page-screen-capture-chrome-extension
