The best thing regarding Hooeey Webprint is that all the data is stored locally on your computer so that you can quickly view the full page screenshot of earlier visited pages, when no internet connection is available.
This is extremely useful for designers and developers who need a better way to archive screen mockups, design prototypes on which they were working through out the day.

Real Time Web Page Capture: Hooeey webprint captures the snapshots automatically in the background. There are no settings to configure and absolutely nothing to tweak. Once the browser extension is in place, the add-on automatically keeps recording the snapshots in the background and archives them for later viewing.
