I personally use 'import' under Linux and then put the pieces together.
Unless you do that task on a very frequent basis, it should be fine. I use
the GIMP to do all the merging. The same goes for Print Screen and Paint,
for example, under Window$.
A program that takes a shot of the entire page has to be quite cunning. It
needs to fetch data that is not in the frame buffer and is stored in one
form of another in RAM (or disk swap) by an arbitrary application. Maybe
Firefox has some extension that handles the task?
