    While using this service i suddenly found that it uses a php file to take screenshots and an http command to execute it.

    The command being :http://www.thumbizy.com/go_2.php?url=http://google.com&size=360

    Well, with this point in mind, you can create a bookmark in firefox to use it as a keyword, for taking super quick screenshots!

    Just bookmark this piece of url by opening the bookmarks organizer:http://www.thumbizy.com/go_2.php?url=%s&size=360

    While saving it give it a name and also give it any keyword like ss. Save it.

    Now suppose you are on google.com and you want to take a screenshot of it. Just point your mouse to the address bar. Add ss and a space infront of the url and hit enter. The url should look like this “ss http://google.com”

    Keywords can be really useful sometimes.

    Very nice tip Keshav.

    Some other options can be used by url like :
    &format=PNG or &format=JPEG(default)
    &cache=NO or &cache=YES(default) can be usefull to have a refreshed thumb at each call, but much more longer to load

    Next version will coming out tomorow (more stable and more options)

    Thumbizy is (or was) great, but it’s been down for several weeks now. Sent a few messages to the admin but haven’t heard anything back. 🙁
