Komodo also has a powerful feature that eliminates the need for guesswork – it captures each and every click, labels them on the video timeline, and stores the screenshots on the sidebar for easy access, eliminating any confusion or uncertainty.

Presenting a video? No worries, Komodo lets you record system audio, too.
