This would be truly awesome, but for $50 a month. I think $20 would be reasonable.

I've been waiting for something like this...but not for $50 a month. Guess I'll just keep firing up the old devil's tower on the other side of the room! For just a couple of months of the $50 price of this "service", you could go out and buy a used Windows machine and load the browsers you wish to test on it.

Not good... You must register for an account to use this app. Granted, there is a free account but it only allows you to test on two browsers. Also, only one of the browsers worked when I tested this app. You cannot zoom the screen-grab so it's essentially useless.

To summarize: it's slow, it doesn't work well, it's inconvenient, use Browsershots.

I'm sorry you didn't have a perfect experience with Alkaline.

Yes, you do need to register to use it. It's intended as a desktop client for existing users of our service, but I don't think that's made clear from the description. That's my fault, I'm sorry.

To zoom the screenshots you simply resize the window - it'll zoom to fit. I like to keep my window quite wide so I can see the screenshots at 100% zoom. I find it works best that way.

I had a look in our logs for your account to check the processing times you experienced. I hope you don't mind. It looks like your screenshots were returned within 2 minutes. That's slower than we'd like - we aim for
