Have you ever wished you could see what was behind a link before clicking on it?
When using Google Chrome to browse the Web or read a social networking site like Facebook or Google+, a feature that will let you preview links can really come in handy.
If you’re looking for an easy way to preview a link before clicking on it, look no further. There’s a neat extension for Chrome that allows you to do just that.
1. Install the SwitftPreview extension.
2. Head over to the options page by right clicking on the SwiftPreview browser icon and selecting “options.”
3. In options, you can customize the preview window’s width and height. If you prefer, you can even make the preview fit to your window.
5. Once you’re done setting up the options, you can browse to any Web page to test it out. When you hover your mouse over a link (short or long), you should see a preview after a few seconds (or long if you’ve changed it in the options).
7. You can also block link previews on individual domains by clicking on the browser icon from that domain. SwiftPreview will be immediately disabled on that domain; you can click the browser icon again to re-enable it for that domain.
That’s it’s! SwiftPreview is definitely not the only tool that can help you preview links in Google Chrome, but it’s simple and does the job well. You’ll save time and clicks.
