About this Add-on
But how often did you want to peek into those gates (links) without actually going there ? Quickview is the solution for that.
Quickview is an extension to preview any link.Once installed, middle-click or ctrl /click , presto your gate opens for a peek.
You can even select any text on the page, and click a virtual button on the bottom right part (or just press ‘f9’) to view what world is saying about the selected text.
You can also view
- WhoSpoke : Contextually, just-in time, find out what others are saying about the information you are watching
- Web search : contextually search the link text on the web. Maybe someone has better information source.
This uses middle-click for pre-viewing a link. (I am open to suggestions for better options for launching a preview)
Note that one can still drag the link to tab areas to open in new tab.
Secondly, once you preview, one can click on the top border to anchor it as full tab
Unlike Cooliris, this is not for just previewing Google search links, it is for any link on any page.
