View your sites in 1X on a Retina display.

Are you a web developer with a Retina display? Do you want to see what your site looks like on a 1x display? Introducing Blind.

Safari has a 'low-resolution mode,' but it doesn't accurately represent what someone experiences on a 1X resolution display.

Use Blind's bookmarklet in your normal browsers to quickly send the site you are working on to Blind.

Once I was Blind but now I see. - As a front end web designer I use Blind on a daily basis to test my work and the work of others in a true 1x resolution. This is an excellent app and a useful asset to my work flow.

Version 1.2
Review by JHanonymous

Not useful for me - Doesn’t open local files, only documents on web servers. And, doesn’t actually render type the way it appears on lo-res machines (doesn’t use “subpixel positioning”) — it just imitates the effect by downsampling everything as a greyscale image. Maybe useful for some, but not for me.
