Snap Preview and Search

A newish search company, snap, is offering a preview for links on one’s site. Its interesting, some links take forever to load, some never seem to (apparently its a queue issue), and others literally “snap” into existence. Perhaps they have already been “snapped” by someone else.

Anyway, to experience it, just roll your mouse over any link and with any luck you will get a thumbnail preview of the site at that link.

(Currently disabled, it was really starting to annoy me. Go look at Photomatt instead)

Additionally, if you use Firefox, you can add Snap to your list of search options for your toolbar.

Found via PhotoMatt where its in use šŸ™‚

    Are you still using this Kyte? It doesn’t work for me in Firefox on your site. I have it on my site though and it works there.

    I haven’t decided if it’s cool or a nuisance!

    As I said in brackets… currently disabled, it was annoying me.

    Sorry šŸ™‚

    Did you use the Word Press plugin (Snap Preview Anywhere)? It gives some options to limit the preview for local links which makes it more user friendly.

    Yeah I did. It still annoyed me. It was candy, really.
