Website thumbnail/iframe scale integration into another website.

Building a modern website directory requires besides of each website description integration of its thumbnail/scaled iframe.

1. One of the best thumbnail solutions is phantom JS project with its screen capture ability.

    height: 358px; /* scaled website screen height */
    padding: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
  width: 1280px; /* website screen width */
  height: 1024px; /* Website screen height */
  border: 0;
  /* iframe zoom out. Cross browser solution. Full size - 1.0; Half size - 0.5 */
  -ms-zoom: 0.35;
  -transform: scale(0.35);
  -moz-transform: scale(0.35);
  -moz-transform-origin: 0 0;
  -o-transform: scale(0.35);
  -o-transform-origin: 0 0;
  -webkit-transform: scale(0.35);
  -webkit-transform-origin: 0 0;
<p>Content before iframe</p>
