Migration of api.thumbalizr.com on 04/18 (COMPLETE)

Website update We successfully migrated api1.thumbalizr.com used by the free and unregistered users to the Browshot platform on 03/28. The next step is the migration of api.thumbalizr.com (silver and gold members) on 04/18 in order to provide faster and reliable screenshots.

After 04/18, api.thumbalizr.com and api1.thumbalizr.com can both be used by all users. We will apply the correct parameters based on the membership.

Beta test

We encourage silver and gold members to start using api1.thumbalizr.com today. Screenshots done on api1.thumbalizr.com will not be counted toward your balance until 04/19. Please report any issue to support@thumbalizr.com.

Migration of api1.thumbalizr.com on 03/28

Website update 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.

Thumbalizr has been acquired by Browshot

Thumbalizr 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.
