Thumbnail snapshots of pages are used in:

  • the page Special:SearchCenter - to show previews of pages in search results,
  • the search box, to show the top search result,
  • the Recent Changes fly-out layer,
  • the Book manager fly-out layer, and
  • the Timeline.

Underlying technology

This extension relies on PhantomJS (for Linux | for Windows) to render the thumbnails.
