    This also can be filed under Chaps My Hide.

    I woud like to hear a reasonable explanation for Grab.app only allowing Timed Screen captures. Why not provide the game functionality to Window and Selection captures? One reason for wanting this functionality is what that then you do Time Screen Capture and are only a need of a drop-down window capture, you are forced to capture the whole screen, then crop the portion that you need (via Photoshop, for example), then save said portion. Granted, Preview.app likely does the job, but I am a die-hard Photoshop fanatic. Soon enough I'll get a SSD drive iMac so that Photoshop boots up faster.

    Forget about Grab.app. Use the keyboard shortcuts.

    Try Command-Shift-4, then space, then click the window or drop-down.

    More commands here. :)
