Firefox extension>COOLIRIS
« on: October 27, 2006, 07:17:46 PM »
Ijust found this Firefox extension.  It is really cool  no pun intended.
It is called    COOLIRIS

• Simply mouse over any link and the Cooliris preview window will instantly appear to show you the underlying content without leaving your current page.

Those of you using Firefox should check it out.

http://www.cooliris.com/index.php?s=home Also for IE, Safari, Flock.

I have uninstalled it a couple of times but now it stay thanks to improved activation of preview - optional icon, shortcut, delay gets rid of popup hell. Nice Cooliris remember enable/disable per site but not really needed now.

I guess it will be a good idea to turn off "Prefetch websites" - Firefox do that already.

And here we see one of my main beefs with Opera: limited plugin support means no love from cool apps like this. :(

On the other hand Im glad Firefox is not big at widget market  8)

The 4 search options for selected word in rightclick menu are almost better than link preview. Hyperwords is getting close to termination Im afraid.

May be not all hope is lost for Opera, this script claims to support Opera 8+ http://shiftingpixel.com/lightbox/ Check Opera javascript forum, got to be mentioned.

I just tried that script and it seems to work on 9.02. Perhaps better ones are available, http://webdev.yuan.c...monkey/lightbox.html is another. Ive used a few for Google previews as well but may be more to Greasemonkey on Opera than copy and paste. Have no idea.
