IE NetRenderer allows you to check how a website is displayed by the numerous versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer. Especially the older versions of Microsoft's Webbrowsers are known for their sometimes unexpected behaviour and failure to comply with W3C internet standards. It is therefore mandatory for every webdesigner to regularily check their websites for compatibility with these webbrowsers. Just type in the URL of an arbitraty webpage in the field above and click on the "Render" button. After a few seconds you will get a screenshot of the page. Try it out, it's free!
IE NetRenderer is fast. Unlike other screenshot services, we are able to process a large number of capturing jobs in parallel and in realtime, making it the fastest service that we know of. Rendering speed should be comparable, if not faster than your local browser. Our IE engines have a guaranteed internet bandwidth of 200 Mbit/s up- and downstream. We must, of course, wait until the very last picture element has been completely loaded before we can even start capturing the page, which makes your local browser appear to be faster.
This web rendering tool is ideally suited for web designers working on Apple iMac and Linux workstations. It allows to verify web designs natively on all popular Internet Explorer versions, without the need to set aside several physical or virtual Microsoft Windows PCs just for that purpose. Before each rendering job we clear the Internet Explorer cache. This allows you to immediately see the effect of all changes made during web development.
Normally IE Netrenderer shows only the topmost part of any webpage. If you want to see parts of the page further down, enter a vertical pixel offset number into the field right to the URL. Rendering starts then at the vertical pixel position specified.
A unique Mixed Overlay and Difference Mode helps to identify even subtle positioning discrepancies between different Internet Explorer versions by adding or subtracting both images and displaying the result.
Screenshot images are always 100% original size and accurate down to a pixel. A Ruler marks maximum usable viewing widths on 800x600 and 1024x768 displays, taking into account the browser scrollbar width.
IE NetRenderer is Secure. Your rendered images and URLs will be kept absolutely private, so no one else gets to see what project you are working on. In contrast to most other screenshot services, all rendered images are immediately deleted from our servers as soon as you see them on your computer. We do, however, log all requests in order to protect against sbuse and there is zero tolerance against vandalism.
NetRenderer loads the reqested webpages from a high speed location in Germany and not from your PC. This makes it useful for several other purposes. You may for example use it as a quick check from within your company LAN in order to see if the Webmail or the Web GUI of your firewall are accessible from outside. Or you can use it as a rough estimate how long it takes to view geographically remote websites by people in central Europe. You may also use IE NetRenderer to view websites anonymously. The visited Webserver will not get any information about your IP address, OS, browser version, plugins or cookies (IP Privacy Check)
