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.
Run Blind concurrently with your normal browser to view your sites in 1x resolution.
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.

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.
