I searched for slashdot and got no thumbnails, just 1x1 images.

I get a few images (see http://ackroyd.de/slashdot.jpg). Currently only sites in
dmoz.org have preview images provided by thumbshots.org.

In a search for 'test' all results should show a preview image.

In GooglePreview 0.2 (http://ackroyd.de/googlepreview/googlepreview.xpi):

Fixed a bug where wrong thumbnails where requested, because google was in user
tracking mode redirecting all result URLs through the google /url tracker. This
resulted in only 1x1 images shown.

Test URLs:
Amazon previews:

Web site previews:
