Firefox: If you need a simple screen recording tool but don't want to install an extra application just for the task the CaptureFox extension brings screen recording to Firefox.
Once you install the extension a small icon is placed in the right hand side of your status bar—for those of you who have banished your status bars for extra screen space, you can hit CTRL+SHIFT+U or open it from the Tools menu instead—clicking on it pulls up the menu you see in the screenshot above.
After you select the settings you want you can begin capturing. The capture can be limited to the Firefox windows or cover the whole screen and you can select your video quality, frame rate, codec and filename. Check out the video below to see it in action.
If you're looking for a stand-alone or web-based screencasting tool, check out our recent Hive Five on best screencasting tools. Have a tool for screencasting you couldn't live without? Let's hear about it in the comments.
You can visit the CaptureFox site at the link below for additional information or jump right to the Mozilla Add-on page for CaptureFox here. CaptureFox is free and works wherever Firefox does.
