View Your Site Under Safari

Posted: November 25th, 2003 | Author: | Filed under: Apple | Comments Off on View Your Site Under Safari

Dan Vine has created a sweet little tool that allows you to see your site as it would be seen in Safari.  Check it out at Through the eyes of a Mac browser.  You can see postneo.com at the right.

I’d really love to know more about how it works, but here is the jist from Dan’s site:

Although I am keeping the source-code private for the time being, I can and shall devulge the basics. This page interfaces to a MySQL database from which a web-service feeds. The iMac parses the requests and then pushes the data through a maze of shell, perl, python and applescripts. The result is returned in the form of a PNG to the requester’s browser window.

Glue, baby!  Cool stuff, Dan.
