Test your Web design in different browsers with Browsershots


Pretty cool utility ;-)
_ Test your Web design in different browsers – Browsershots

Browsershots makes screenshots of your Web design in different browsers. It is a free open-source online service created by Johann C. Rocholl. When you submit your Web address, it will be added to the job queue. A number of distributed computers will open your Web site in their browser. Then they will make screenshots and upload them to the central server here.

Hat tip to Steve, who finally has a blog, dammit!

    Community Contest 2007: Learning to Share


    Check it out:

    Community Guy – Jake McKee » Community Contest 2007: Learning to Share
    Any robust community is all about sharing; it’s what powers the group. Without an open exchange of ideas, content, and kind words, you don’t have community you merely have a group. Sharing is the social glue that creates long lasting relationships.

    In a quest to reduce risk, holding their cards close to the vest, business has forgotten how to share. Your customers & community members what you to pass along information, give them insight into the company/brand they love, and create a relationship that’s based on a collaboration. Trust is built through this collaboration, and trust is a core tenet of customer interaction.

    Think about it – what makes you go back to a community, or enjoy it? It’s the interaction and the sharing…

    Welcome to the Kindo Beta release!


    This has been a long time coming, and it feels good to finally get there, albeit with a mountain still to climb!!!
    Personal reflective blog post to follow soon…

    A little while ago we released an Alpha to a small group of people, to gather valuable user feedback. Thanks to those great people, we’ve had our heads down improving Kindo, and as a result we’re releasing the Beta, and at the same time opening it up to a wider audience for more feedback.

    We’ve made the following progress:

    1. Kindo is much faster now
    2. The Kindo tree is now much more stable and knowledgable
    3. You can invite family members to your tree
    4. Many more user interface improvements and enhancements
      • *Note: we’re continually adding more, so please tell us about things you think should work better or be more obvious.
    5. The internet is global now, so we’re releasing in 7 languages:
      • English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Afrikaans, Polish; with Russian, Turkish, Hindi, Hebrew and Arabic on the way.

    Our mantra has become “Speed, Simple, Pleasure“, so in a nutshell that means we’re always trying to make Kindo faster for you, simpler, more intuitive and perhaps most importantly a pleasure to use.

    Our new URL is http://beta.kindo.com/.

    What can we do to make Kindo better?
    If you dont like it – tell us why.
    If you do like it – what are you missing?
