Monkiri is a new Indian startup that offers a simple way to capture screenshots from anywhere online and blog about them instantly. Monkiri is in the same category as leader Skitch except without most of the Skitch features. Depending on your perspective, the lack of features may or may not be a bad thing.
You install a browser plugin in IE or Firefox and then when you want to grab a screenshot, just hit the browser button, highlight the area and you are done. The screenshot is then uploaded to your Monkiri blog and you can add more information about the screenshot or post it immediately.
Monkiri works with Windows while Skitch is Mac only. If all y ou want is a way to grab screenshots and share them, or for a simple scrapbook, Monkiri works well. Forcing users to use Monkiri for their blog will limit the success the tool has. If they allowed simple publishing to any blog (similar to how Skitch works), Monkiri would potentially see a more rapid user adoption.
