    Not with pure javascript, you can however get the prepared snap-shots from alexa.com or something similar.

    Apparently this script (http://bluga.net/webthumb/) uses AJAX... But I'm not sure how it works yet.

    rajug: The easiest way is to gather thumbnails from sites such as alexa or snap.com, but seems alexa has stopped giving out free thumbnails. So you could simply goto: http://www.webshotspro.com/screenshot.php and either download that piece of softwar or simply request this(If you are using ajax) http://www.webshotspro.com/screensho...f+this+website

    Or simply contact the webmaster of bluga.net and request if he could let you get the thumbnails asynchoronously.

    You still have another option, if you're using a linux server you can install html2jpg or html2png and then request your webserver to call that script each time you send a request with cgi or some other mechanism.

    Now the choice is yours.



    EDIT: Just remembered you can also use http://www.websnapr.com/
