Opera Software has announced that it has included a built-in screenshot utility to the latest Opera developer release.
Opera developer 48.0.2664.0 gets a camera icon to the sidebar that lets users capture a section of the page or entire web page. Clicking on the camera icon will open the adjustable frame on the web page. You can adjust the area you want to capture and then hit the “Capture” to snap the screenshot. There will also be a ‘Capture Full Site’ option to capture the entire visible page.

Opera calls this tool “Snap”. The captured screenshot will be saved to a location of your choice. You can also keep that in clipboard if you want to paste it to another app.
Snap will be on the left sidebar but you are always free to configure which tools are visible on the sidebar.
Opera is not the first browser to add screenshot utility. Vivaldi and Firefox are the two that already added the same tool in past.
Along with this tool, Opera has also done rearrangements in the Opera Menu for Windows and Linux systems.
After this tool on Opera, we can expect Chrome to think of adding a built-in functionality to capture screenshots of web pages. Users have to install third-party tools or extensions to do this.
