I want a good extension/user script which would be able to capture screen (selected area) and then join these captured images into animated gif.

Is there one?

That is some complicated task for Chrome ... :) – Shiki Sep 2 '11 at 11:26
And for firefox? Or other browsers? – genesis Sep 2 '11 at 11:27

You could try: It's a chrome extension that allows you to do it.

As of 9/JUN/2014 the extension isn't working on Chrome 35 on Ubuntu 13.10, and has comments from windows users too – ReactiveRaven Jun 9 '14 at 13:48

While there aren't any extensions that I know, there is a host of applications that create animated gifs. Besides the Photoshop, you can also download Advanced Gifeditor, MS GIF animator.

You can also use and GIMP. As far as grabbing screen clips, you can use the Windows built in Snag it. Or a large host of applications that exist for this.

You can try Snagit (chrome extension). It supports image capture, video recording and its gif formation. Check this for details.

This reads a lot like spam as the linked application is commercial software. Can you edit your post to indicate whether you're affiliated with the developer of the product and explain why this would be a better solution? – bwDraco Mar 22 '15 at 20:04
