How to Ensure Your GoFullPage Version is Up-to-Date

We are constantly improving and updating the app, so you’ll want to make sure you’re on our most up-to-date version!

Why update?

As the best app for screenshotting entire webpages, we are always improving for new browser conditions! So, if you aren’t using the most current version of the app, you aren’t getting the most out of GoFullPage’s services and functionality.

A recent update to the Chrome and Edge browsers completely disabled GoFullPage. Thanks to user reporting, we were able to address the bug swiftly and made an update this past May:
