Migration of api1.thumbalizr.com on 03/28

We will start the migration of Thumbalizr to the Browshot platform with api1.thumbalzr.com on Friday, March 28th at 9pm PST.

What is changing?

Silver and Gold users: no change, all of your API calls are handled by api.thumablizr.com.

Unregistered and free users: There will be no major change. The API stays the same. Screenshots should be faster and more reliable after the migration.

Just after the migration, some of the screenshots requested recently might not be available, a new screenshot request will be done on the new platform.

Let us know if you find any difference in behavior after the upgrade on 03/27/2014 at 9:00pm PST.

Thumbalizr has been acquired by Browshot

Thumbalizr has been acquired by the screenshot service Browshot.


How does this affect current users?

Thumbalizr will continue to serve current and future users. We will move the back-end to the Browshot platform, but Thumbalizr will continue to operate as a separate screenshot service.

We do not anticipate any major change to Thumbalizr. Thumbalizr will continue to focus on simplicity.

What is Browshot?

Browshot is the most powerful screenshot service. Browshot offers unique features such as automated uploads to S3, custom requests (cookies, POST data, custom JavaScript, etc.), mobile browsers like the iPhone and Android, etc.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any question about Browshot, Thumbalizr or the acquisition.
