Thanks for clearing that up; I always wondered by even Apple apps like Safari showed me nothing but greyed-out Grab options on the Services menu. Seems to me that this reliance on pasteboard ability is a handicap to Grab -- I don't use it, since there are good screen cap utils out there and since, if I want to cap a window, I can always use Apple's built-in method: CMD-SHIFT-4, then whack the spacebar .... Personally, I favor Constrictor, because its options and preferences suit my needs perfectly.

you didn't understand, obviously.

the "grab" service is not meant to grab a screenshot OF the current document/application, but rather to insert a screenshot INTO the current document/application.

since you can't insert a picture into a webpage viewed in safari, you can't use the grab service there.
