linux default iconPixelZoomer Publisher's description

Takes a screenshot of the current website and provides various tools for pixel analysis

PixelZoomer is a Firefox extension for web developers which allows for zooming into websites. The core features are characterized by tools for pixel perfect measuring of distances and picking colors (HEX codes) with an eye dropper. The viewable area of a web page is being displayed in PixelZoomer through using a screenshot so that the view is based on real pixels.

The PixelZoomer add-on ought to replace the step of using an image editing software when developing a web project. This provides the possibility of analysing sizes and distances directly in the browser. PixelZoomer uses a new CSS attribute to display the zoomed image. So the pixels are rendered crisp without using anti-aliasing.

PixelZoomer uses different methods for rendering screenshots of an opened web page. The desired option can be activated in the settings. You can choose between "Java" and "Canvas". The Java method requires the activated runtime environment and needs a bit more time than the Canvas technique. The advantage of Java lies in the accurate rendering of pixels and colors because with the use of the Canvas method there may occur semi-transparent pixels (subpixels) which aren't present in the regular browser view.

What's New in This Release:

В· This version is a pure compatibility update. PixelZoomer now works in Firefox 4 Beta.
В· Fresh new features will be released with the next update.

Notice for rendering method:
В· The rendering with Java was removed. The canvas rendering method should be clean and exact. So there shouldn't occur any differences compared to the browser display.

System Requirements:

В· Mozilla Firefox
Program Release Status:
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
