    Looks interesting, but they don't post how much it costs. Anyone have any idea?
  3. While the product looks very complete, under what circumstances/use cases would you want to render a web page under the covers on the server?

    Brad, some uses for the Server Edition of WebRenderer are automated HTML to thumbnail image generation, server based printing of web reports, automated DOM based headless web regression tests, HTML to PDF conversion (with a PDF driver) to name a few.

    It's somewhere around $12,000US/server as I recall from recent conversation with a sales guy from the company.
