i like they've arbitrarily removed webshots compatibility - i.e., the only useful feature. webshots itself has a mac client that's been in beta forever and isn't compatible with os x 10.3.4 or *higher* (yes, you read that correctly). Can some agile cocoa coder please fill the gaping void left by this development - or lack thereof, as the case may be.

Webshots actually pays to those artists offering their work to your desktop. I don't think its ethical.

For that incompatible mac webshots, if you ask kindly, you can get a beta build which does the job.

(give valid reasons to backup your claims)

The url for the webshots client that supports 10.3.4 and later is:



Lucky for me I stuck with the old SwapTop 1.9 which had the ability to export Webshots to jpeg.

Well, I suppose if you can't be a Webshots client anymore, then it's time to launch your own competing service.
