HoverZoom 1.7.1

An easy to configure and use Safari extension that enables you to quickly zoom-in images that have been resized, regardless or the hosting website.
Most websites use resized versions for profile images and other types of photos, and viewing them in full size usually requires opening a new tab / window. HoverZoom is a minimalist Safari extension that can detect if a larger image version is available and quickly opens the picture in a panel added on top of the webpage.

Quick to install Safari extension for viewing full size images in no time

The HoverZoom installation procedure places the extension in your Safari Preferences window, where you get to easily adjust its behavior. After the initial set up, HoverZoom does not require your attention, but you should open the Preferences at least once to make sure the settings match your own needs.

Versatile image zooming solution developed for Safari

HoverZoom offers you the possibility to use various triggers for launching the zooming process: you get to simply hover your mouse, or use different special keys to both open and hide the image panel. You can also create hotkeys for maximizing the images, or for viewing the page summary.

In addition, you get to decide the types of links that will be zoomed (images, videos, or websites), to adjust the zoom delay, or to setup the minimum zooming factor. Among other customization options, you also have the opportunity to create black and white domain names lists.

Last but not least, HoverZoom is able to generate a “page summary” that displays only the zoomable images included in the current webpage, via a panel placed on top of the Safari browsing area.

Efficient image zooming solution that integrates seamlessly with Safari

HoverZoom provides simple but very effective solutions for quickly zooming images that have been resized. The extension is not designed for specific websites and you should be able to use its functions on any webpage that contains pictures that have a larger version.
