Cool tool - Snap Shots

Saturday, June 09, 2007

I just installed a nice little tool on this site called Snap Shots that enhances links with visual previews of the destination site, including condensed excerpts of Wikipedia articles and IMDb profiles, instant playing of videos, display of stock charts and more.

Sometimes Snap Shots brings the information needed right to the readers, without them having to leave the site, while other times Snap Shots enables users to "look ahead," before deciding if they want to follow a link or not, saving them time and effort and increasing their ability to focus on the content that matters most to them.

However, should you decide this is not for you, just click "Disable" in the upper right corner of the Snap Shots bubble and opt-out.

I have seen the snap shots on another blog too. I am still considering it, though. It is a good tool and beneficial to some. I just updated my blog to clean it up a bit. I may use snap shots in the future. Thanks for the tip, though. Appreciate it, Jamy.

jamy: I agreed with KH. Housekeeping is needed urgently and the hyperlinked colour need to be darker. Icons should be smaller too.
