Before Cooliris introduced their cool PicLens* add-on for Firefox and Safari, Cooliris Previews was already a popular add-on among Firefox fans. It is one of the Firefox recommended extensions. Previews helps you browse faster, easier and efficiently.
Cooliris Previews lets you preview links and rich media without clicking or leaving your current page, so you can browse the web faster than ever. It gives you a preview window that instantly appears and shows you the content when you mouse over a link. This means no more clicking back and forth! And you don’t need to open new windows or tabs to open links. This is a must-have add-on especially if you’re a power surfer.
I’ve been using Cooliris Previews for quite sometime now and I think it’s probably one of the coolest Firefox extensions out there. And with the new version, Previews 2.5, aside from the new interface you can now choose your theme. And the enhanced right-click subsearch is added so you can add your own favorite websites. Features includes:
- “Stack” previewed items into temporary bookmarks to quickly preview later.
- Instantly send links to friends and family with just a click.
- Automatically subsearch Google, Wikipedia, and many others by right-clicking on any phrase
- Customize preferences to control preview window activation, time delay, size & position, etc.
Cooliris Previews is free to download and use, and does not contain any adware or spyware whatsoever. If you’re browsing with Firefox right now, you can install and try this add-on by clicking the link below: (Works with Firefox 1.0 – 3.0a1)
