      Have been running both ShareX and Snagit on separate PC's for over a year. Both are good although Snagit can delete your captures if not careful. Will probably drop Snagit for ShareX on all machines.

      Operates from the System tray. Simple start and stop. Great video quality. Easy Trim function. Slower Trim Save As than Snagit.

      The OCR functionality is very useful and the annotation and markup tools are plentiful and easy to use; very small learning curve for a powerful tool.

      Doesn't come near the ease and functionalities of what Snagit has. On the plus side, it is free.

      Greenshot does not even come near Snagit. Very low usability. NOT intuive and the tools are on such a low level-I can`t even describe.

      With SnagIt you can remove sections from anywhere in the image, close the orphaned parts together to remake the whole, strip out, reduce top,sides,bottom to make a new size, all in the one session. With shutter all you have is crop!

      can't write! Can't trim screenshots, 'capture new' is destructive of the existing, no shapes like lines or circles to highlight text... list goes on. Skanky.

      No scrolling capture, not enough editing or output choices. Fine for simple capturing, but not bigger jobs

      pros, cons and recent comments
      Evernote Web Clipper only works for webpages. If you need to capture applications that not use the browser were it is installed it will not work.
