Greenlight is a free visual feedback tool for websites based on GitHub issues. Here you can use it to collect feedback about your website from anyone and then analyze them. The best part is that for each website feedback, it can create a GitHub issue and then you can work further to resolve it. And not only GitHub but it can help you open  issues from feedback comments in Jira as well.

Here you can add your teammates in it and then collaborate on some projects. This is basically a Chrome extension and you will have all the feedback (as comments) consolidated into one place. You can create a project for each site and different projects can have different contributors. You can resolve issues that you receive from the extension itself and download them in your PC in Markdown format.

Here you can use this extension with your clients so they can leave feedback on your work. One good thing about this extension is that it automatically captures extra details about the user such as platform, browser, and screen resolution. This extra data will help you debug find the problems and resolve the issue.
