Fantastically useful for anyone who needs to take consistently sized screen captures OR wrangle with a window manager that likes to resize things capriciously (Hi Monterey). Kinda wish you could set height too.

Very helpful for web developers. You can set whatever sizes you want, and it's very easy to use.
