A browser to take cleaner screenshots of websites

Many times when sharing screenshots of websites, I would like to show the website loaded in the browser but at the same time, I don’t want to show all the clutter that comes with the browser like the toolbar, tabs, extensions, etc.

While there are many third-party tools that can do this, I have recently stumbled upon an app (or rather a browser) that makes it damn simple.

This app called Confectionery (Mac-only for now) is a tweaked version of the Chromium browser that takes out all the clutter I mentioned about leaving you only with an address bar.

So, when you load a website, there will only be the website address and the content of the website loaded in the browser. Bare minimum to take clean screenshots!
