Description Author  

This class can be used to take screenshots of Web pages using Mozilla embedded GTK widget.

It creates a graphical user interface window using PHP-GTK 2 that contains a GtkMozEmbed browser widget.

The browser gadget is pointed to a given URL and the class saves the page as to a image file in PNG format when the page stops loading.

The class works in Linux/UNIX and other platforms that support the GtkMozEmbed widget.

Some sites need to generate screenshots of Web site pages to show how certain pages look site.

There have been solutions that use Internet Explorer to load and capture Web site page screenshots using PHP. However, such solutions only run on Windows.

This class provides an alternative solution to take screenshots of pages that can run on Linux and platforms that support PHP-GTK 2 and the GtkMozEmbed widget.

This way it can generate screenshots of what a page looks like on Firefox or other browsers based on the Gecko engine.
