CoolPreviews is a popular Firefox add-on that enables you to preview the underlying content of links without clicking.
Hover your mouse cursor on a link from any site mentioned below and see its content almost instantaneously.
Currently, the supported sites are Google (Search, Images, News, Froogle, etc.), eBay, Craigslist, CNN News, BBC News, and Del.icio.us. CoolPreviews also works for any RSS feed, and the list of supported sites is growing.
In other works, CoolPreviews gives you the power to browse and share Web links and rich media faster. Just mouse over any link, and the Cooliris preview window immediately appears to show you the content. To email it, just click.
CoolPreviews will ultimately help you to eliminate your need to click in and out of unwanted search results, while allowing you to maintain your search context. How cool is that?
The CoolPreviews add-on is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
