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:
    http://nukeit.org/images/perishablepress_com_kmeleon.png

    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:

  8. Attached to an email sent to jeff@…

    Safari 3.1.1 on XP SP3 at 1024×768.

    ;)

  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.

Thoughts
Playing the long game.
They have weaponized the idiots.
Good software never steals focus from the user. Even during startup.
After 10 years running my own business, I still manage schedules and tasks using old school post-it notes, sometimes simple sometimes very elaborate.
You know those sites, where you're trying to just grab a quick bit of information but the page is shifting all over the place as it loads up 3 million advertisements.
Selling two of my top WordPress domains, wp-zen.com & zen-wp.com $300 for both. Aged 9 years. Drop a line if interested.
Never force your users to type out a password (or any long string of characters) by blocking the paste function. Typing long strings leads to MORE errors than simple copy/paste.
