Nice idea - but it deosn't seem terribly consistent.

webshot /url http://www.donationcoder.com works fine

but

webshot /url http://www.bbc.co.uk

only outputs the banner from the top of the page ... maybe it is something to do with JavaScript because it does the same thing on my domain lairdswood.com (just the top banner) and the page contents are genreated by JavaScript.

I sent the author an email earlier today and just got a message back to say the problem is fixed. Nice one Nathan.

I like this tool - I want one in this fashion but with support for multiple Browser - IE5, 6, 7,  Opera and Firefox... Maybe this would cool as Screenshot Captor fork ;)

I wonder how it works... probably uses an embedded IE control?

Yes - it uses the IE Controll - IE is prompting me if I want to allow ActiveX when Im trying to capture a page with flash content...
