This WordPress plugin displays a mini preview window on the edit post or edit page screen.
Mini Preview sits in the Page or Post tab when you are editing a page or post in WordPress.
Buttons above the preview window provide for Refresh, various display sizes, and preview in new tab.
The preview window is a fully-functional, interactive mini browser showing exactly what the page will look like, except in miniature.
