    Hi Cathy;

    As Snagit for Google Chrome was a browser extension specific to Google Chrome and the support for it will be discontinued, we have no intention of developing a browser extension for Edge (or other popular browsers). You are welcome to try out the Snagit desktop application, which you can read up on here.

    what a pitty. It worked so well. I can understand that you don't make profits on it and that is the reason to stop? We love ChromeOS that much that we will never return to Windows again. Thank you for pointing me to alternatives.

    Not sure why you would drop support for ChromeOS... this app worked excellent in our environment, but now we must move on to something else...

    Nooo. I like so much this web app. Probabily the most used web app in my case. :( I'm very sad.

    With Android apps coming to Chromebooks, their popularity will increase. I believe you'll be missing out on a growing market.

    Up until now I considered TechSmith a partner in education.  Pulling the Chrome Extension for Snagit will negatively impact a number of students and teachers who have come to rely on such an excellent product.  Shame, TechSmith.

    Agreed 100%. Terrible decision on their part.

    Software engineers betting against the Chromebook are destined to regret their decisions. That said, you have made your position clear and the reference to alternatives is appreciated.

    I agree with other posters, retiring Google Chrome app is a mistake. I've been using SnagIt for close to two decades, but will need to move on to something else as I've moved to Google Chrome. While I am an early adopter, I believe you will find that as Android apps are available on more Chromebooks, you may see the masses start moving as well. The future is in Internet connected apps and cloud storage, so you better get back on board so you don't get left behind. J

    Boo. This is a bad idea. Not happy about this.

    That was a real pity. It was a great app and I still could not find a decent replacement.
    Anyone has a download link?

    The trouble with 'Capture, Explain and Send Screenshots' is the clutter of useless lines on top and at the bottom of every captured shot. You must capture extra large selections of the screen and then need to enter the picture in an editor to remove the clutter.
    If you can deal with such an annoying disadvantage, that chrome-app is doable.

    I used this method to backup and restore this extension. I pointed to the folder inside of the long ugly name of the extension and it worked.

    This is one of the reasons I rarely use SnagIt anymore. That and the fact that it is bug-ridden.

    Oh, I was trying to use a snagit image in Chrome, in the free trial. This is a deal breaker and I won't be buying it. Just wasted an hour. Dang. Uninstalling.

    This is really disappointing. There's no reason not to support Chromebook.

    Please bring it back.  This is a useful product offering with potential revenue stream for your business.  Screencastify and other services provide a limited number of free captures in order to convert new users to paid customers. Can't see why that wouldn't work for TechSmith and requires minimal resource to support.

    Thanks,
