Will Link for Screenshots

Quick announcement that I will be posting an article featuring a diverse screenshot gallery of the new design. To accomplish this, I need screenshots from as many different operating systems and browsers as possible. Currently, I have access to the following browsers:

Windows XP (Home, SP1)

  • Firefox 1.5.0 & 2.0.0
  • Opera 8.54 & 9.50
  • Internet Explorer 7.0
  • Google Chrome 0.2.149
  • Flock 0.4.9 (yeah, I know)

Mac OS X (10.4.8)

  • Firefox 3.0.1
  • Opera 9.23
  • Safari 2.0.4
  • Camino 1.0.3

Thus, I need screenshots of the Perishable Press home page on any browser/platform not listed. I am doing this not only for the sake of prosperity, but for cross-browser accuracy as well.

To participate, send your screenshot(s) along with the URL for your site. After a week or so of soliciting for screenshots, I will post the collection along with links for everyone who helped. It’s a bribe, I know, but I want those screenshots, so send ‘em in, people!

  1. Have you tried browsershots.org, that should provide you with most of the screen shots you want.

  2. Firefox 3.0.3, WinXP, 1280×1024, full page:

  3. Firefox 3.1b1pre (CE build), WinXP, 1280×1024, visible area only:

    K-Meleon 1.5.0, WinXP, 1280×1024, visible area only:

    I took this as an afterthought since k-meleon often gives problems (as you can see) feel free to delete these links when you’re done :)

    browsershots is great, but the wait time for unusual browsers is a pain, often nearing an hour or so for a full set of screens

  4. I can help you with IE6 on Windows XP (yep, I don’t find it worth to upgrade, and I also need IE6 for fixing bugs in my designs), and Firefox on Ubuntu Linux.

    But then again, Browsershots should be pretty good (I use it often) as comment#1 points out.

  5. Hi Jeff,

    this is the link to my screenshot of your website:

  9. For good measure, check your jeff@ for Opera 9.52 on these OSs:

    Windows 2000 Professional SP4 (VM)

    Windows 98 Second Edition

    ;)

  10. Here are a couple for you (looks great in both):

    Firefox 2.0.0.17 on Linux (on Kubuntu 7.10)
    http://media.altj.org/200810/pp-ff.png

    Konqueror 3.5.8 on Linux (on Kubuntu 7.10) http://media.altj.org/200810/pp-konq.png

    I might be able to get you a Firefox 3 on Linux later tonight.

    Why don’t you try http://browsershots.org/ ? They can help with almost every browser/ OS combination and resolutions.
    Works tremendously well.
