Try the new Browshot

We've been working hard over the past couple of months to provide a new version of the Browshot website. We didn't want to put just a new skin on the existing website. We wanted to build the foundation of a better, more user-friendly, website and dashboard.

Try the new version at It shares the same back-end as the main website. Use your current credentials to login. Any screenshot you use will count towards your balance.

We'd love to get your feedback. I hope you'll find the new dashboard easier to use.
