- Go to twitter and peek at some backgrounds!
Um … it's a twidget!
Are you hip to twitter? Well, peekr is kinda like a Twitter Widget (a "twidget") because it's a tiny little Twitter helper. Some tweeple might call it a bookmarklet, but we know it's so much more! Is this making any sense yet? Maybe you'll have to try it and see it in action to get a good feel for how useful peekr can be... Go ahead, click the button above that says, sneak a peek! to see what peekr does. Go on, you know you want to!
Okay, so peekr really is just a nifty little bookmarklet that you can drag to your browser's toolbar and click on to see a twitter user's entire background graphic and then click again to get things back to normal. That's it. Pretty simple you say? Yup, and simple is good.
So how do I use it?
Just drag the big hunkering button below to your browser's toolbar, or right-mouse-click and save it as a bookmark (Note: in Internet Explorer bookmarks are called "favorites") and then click it anytime you're on twitter and you want to hide everything but the background. Click it again to unhide everything and carry on...
If by chance something goes haywire when you're using peekr, just hit your browser's refresh button and all will be fine once again. Don't worry.
Note: This twidget will not work in Internet Explorer 6 at all and just barely gets the job done in Internet Explorer 7 or 8. If you really like peekr and want to see more twidgets like it, then we strongly suggest you download and use a better browser. Try any one of these awesome choices: Firefox, Safari, Opera, Chrome, Camino, or Flock and yes even in IE7+

Two web geeks were talking about twitter backgrounds, and how it's such a hassle to be able to see them without all of those tweets in the way. It's a hassle, don't you think? In a few minutes an idea was born. Geek #1 went back to his cube, and in just a few minutes more -- he created the peekr bookmarklet. Geek #2 said, "Hey, why don't we share this thing with all the other tweeple?"
And soon Li'l Peekr and his peekr twidget were born!
Give us a follow on twitter...
We love twitter and we tweet all the time. We plan on staying in touch with our peekr users through our Lil' Peekr twitter account (see the little bird below? That's Lil' Peekr, follow him). He'll let you know of updates and other twidgets we're working on, our solutions to Global Warming, and other random stuff like that.
Drop some tweets on us if you use peekr or just like to talk geek. We'd love to see your backgrounds! If you like peekr, tell all your friends and let us know, and follow us on twitter (@peekr, @unscriptable, @ptamaro) because we're thinking of making some other handy little twidgets and share them with you!
