Site Mirror. Can you hear Satan speaking?

There's was a similar site to this that I used to know about ages ago, that would also flip the images around, giving a much better overall effect.

This one flips the images around too. Or is it just me...?

That is scary...also headache inducing. It doesn't seem to always like CSS, but maybe my site is just badly coded. The image flipping is cool.

Satan? I'm no linguist, but it looked more like Welsh to me.

The images are flipped in IE via the filter:fliph CSS extension, which Mozilla doesn't support.

Pretty_Cool.

I can use this site when I am doing my opposite days.

It doesn't seem to work for 2002: A Palindrome story. I was going to make that a post, but eh, whatever.

Oh, and everybody missed the obvious:

Hang on.. what if you ran Elgoog through this? Would it all be round the right way??

It ALMOST DOES! It forgot to bring the left sided scrollbar back to the right again ;-)

Jokes aside, this is actually a nifty tool to test layouts. If you can still identify what everything in a layout is when it's mirrored (and so you don't get textual context) then you're onto a winner.

I don't get it. Can somebody explain the fundamental purpose of this? I'm serious. I love when y'all talk techie. Thanks.

You must not spend too much time around web developers. This is our idea of fun.

vraxoin - I thought there was an actual purpose to mirror sites though besides just showing off your skillz?

Which it shouldn't as filter: is a Microsoft proprietary property.

Or you should spend a lot of time around web developers and it will be your idea of fun too.
