    page preview

    I have been noticing alot of sites that use javascript that take a link and then when you hover over that link it gives you a preview of the page that you will be sent too. What i want is for that image to be printed out next to the link without having to hover. does anybody know how to do this properly?

    You'd need to reverse engineer the js and embed the link it calls into the SRC attribute of an IMG tag. I guess it depends on which snapshot provider you are referring to, and what their terms and conditions are. They are afterall part of an advertising campaign (ie sponsored links), not something freely available that I'm aware of.

    Sites such as http://www.websnapr.com/ and http://www.webshotspro.com/ allow you do generate website thumbnails using free APIs.
