Automatic preview of web page?


Senior Member
Would it be possible to have a script preview a web page and displaying a screenshot in a little thumbnail (just static, no rollover stuff) without having visited the web page first?

My JavaScript knowledge is close to nihil so a link-through to a site might be helpful. :confused:

EDIT: come to think of it, very much like SearchPreview, but I have no idea how that works.

Mmm....querying a search engine via Ajax and displaying their results as your own is pretty easy, maybe someway of querying the cached version of their page perhaps and then turning it in to an image using PHP, then displaying the results in a image form.

Intresting let me have a think and see if I can come up with a way to pull it off for you. :)
