    SilverNetworks today released an updated version of its new remote screen capture tool, Spy 1.0.1. Spy allows users to run a small server on their Mac, that when accessed by any normal Web browser, allows people to see their screen, as well as information about their Mac. Version 1.0.1 adds the ability to turn off the live stream or limit how many people can be connected to it at once, and blocks Safari v58 and below from viewing live streams (formerly blocked v54 and below), because Safari does not support Server Push. Spy 1.0.1 is freeware and works with Mac OS 7.6 and above, and Mac OS X.

    No, Spy is better, faster, and rocks.

    "Whoa, where'd you get that desktop picture?"

    'Holy crap that girl is hot!"

    etc :-D

    I've used both. Personally, I like Spy better. It does NOT block Safari users. And, it allows streaming capabilities. Also, with Snapperhead, it takes over ur CPU after a couple of snaps. Spy doesn't.

    Spy doesn't block Safari users from viewing the sites. It only blocks them from using Live Connections, because the feature Server Push isnt supported.

    So what happens?
    The mac you run as a server takes a screenshot and allows the browser to view it in their browser window?

    so just a glorified web cam?

    Basically. But whereas a webcam takes a physical picture of the real world, Spy only takes a picture of the state of your computer.
