I once came across a utility program which can capture a snapshot of a website and save the full page as a png image file. Too bad I forget the name of it. Anyone helps?

You're looking for the Firefox Addon ScreenGrab.

platform independent tool: 'cutycapt':

CutyCapt is a small cross-platform command-line utility to 
capture WebKit's rendering of a web page into a variety of 
vector and bitmap formats, including SVG, PDF, PS, PNG, JPEG, 
TIFF, GIF, and BMP.

I'm partial to SnagIt, though it does a lot more than you need.

If you're looking for a standalone application then it might be SiteShorter

I'm using the Pearl Crescent Screen Saver Firefox add-on. The basic edition is free.

Other answers have several options for you, but just to throw it into the mix: Your OS probably provides a way to do this.

For instance, on either Windows or Linux (if you're using Gnome or a recent version of KDE) you'd press Alt+PrtScr to copy the active window's image to the clipboard (or just PrtScr to capture the entire desktop, but you said you just wanted the web page). Then paste it into (insert your favorite picture editor here) and save as PNG, optionally cropping out the browser chrome.

This page discusses the screenshot features built into Mac OS X. (Command+Control+Shift+3 copies the entire screen to the clipboard, but you have several other options.)

This only gets the visible portion of the web page. If it's longer than the height of the screen you'll be missing some data. –  ChrisF May 26 '10 at 12:34
    
@ChrisF: Indeed yes, and I should have highlighted that, thanks. Mostly listed this as an option for those situations where for whatever reason, using Screengrab or the other alternatives isn't convenient. –  T.J. Crowder May 26 '10 at 12:59

On the Mac I like LittleSnapper for image and PDF output.

However, I typically use DevonThink to grab PDF versions of websites.

Well you got bunch of answers but I would like to suggest you one more option for you.

Maxthon 3

A power-packed browser which has some features that you'll definitely fall in love.

Maxthon Snapshot is among these features, you can check this video for How to Use it.

Here are 6 other important features.

The best thing is you don't need to install extra plugins/exensions for these features that also causes slowliness of a browser, these are in-built in Maxthon. Here is a review.
