We have implemented viewport a new request parameter.

Viewport allows you to:

Before viewport:

before viewport 400

After viewport=400:

after viewport 400

I finally got around to building the forgot username, forgot password, and change password pages. LinkPeek should be a bit more functional now.

Linkpeek's webpage snapshot request options now support fetching images securely over HTTPS / SSL.

Requesting secure website screenshot images from a secure site will prevent mixed content warnings.
