I'm loving Snap Shots

I've just popped over to the lovely Running in Suffolk blog and noticed a clever little widget that Bury Blue has added... Snap Shots. Being a bit of techo-geek, I found this really appealing and have just installed it over here. Basically, the technology is aimed at enhancing links, so that when one hovers the mouse over a link, a preview of the destination site is shown. Clever eh?

As a reader, you can click the "sun" icon in the preview box and edit the default options. It is also possible to even disable it if you find it really annoying. However, I hope you like it and find it useful.

Happy surfing ;-)

It's probably my PC, but it stops firefox from responding for about 30 seconds or so. It seems to hang on the direct.gov.uk site, so it's probably grinding to a halt while pre-fetching data from all the various links on the page. Works a treat in IE7 though!

Sorry Austen if it's caused you're PC a bit of bother, but hopefully it sounds as though it's over it. There is the option to disable it, if it causes anyone too much of a problem.
I am loving it at the moment, it's saving me double-clicking onto sites that have not been updated in ages. Such a lazy surfer, I know.
