Hi.
Have you seen WordPress lately?
When you hover over a link, a tooltip appears containing an image (snap) of the refrenced URL.
I'm sure it is ajax, but how they implement it ?
Looks like magic.

Well you could code your own app that finds a url, goes to the site, takes a screenshot saves it, and plans updates for that url in the future.
