webscreenshot.py | A Simple script that aids in testing large websites

Web Screenshot – webscreenshot.py is a great tool which comes in handy when a penetration tester needs to quickly identify potential vulnerabilities on a massive website.

The tool also has a nice support for cookies, headers, proxies which is the reason I give 4/5 bunnies for this tool:
