Creating an online backup of your data not only keeps it safe from being lost but it also facilitates remote collaboration with other project members. This is precisely why many people have accounts on web services such as DropBox. For Google fans however, only one web service can do this job satisfactorily – Google Drive.

Google Drive offers Google fans a familiar interface and clean categorization. One of the many things that people use the service for is to keep a record of website screenshots. These screenshots serve as a record of the content and layout of a website. Normally, the process requires a person to take a screenshot of the website and then upload it to a Google Drive account. Fortunately however, there is now a tool that lets you easily upload website screenshots to your Google Drive account. This tool is called “Save to Google Drive”.

Save to Google Drive is a free to use browser extension for Google Chrome. After you have installed the extension, you will find its new icon placed in the browser’s address bar. Go over to any webpage and click on this icon to have the screenshot of the webpage generated and uploaded to your Google Drive account.

By default, the saving settings for a webpage are an image i.e. a PNG image is generated of the webpage and sent to Google Drive. But you can choose from other output formats as well, including an entire webpage PNG, visible webpage PNG, raw HTML, MHTML, or a Google Doc compatible format. You can also right click on object links on the webpage to send them to Google Drive; documents, images, and HTML5 media can be sent directly to your Drive account this way.
