Introducing Snap Shots from Snap.com

I just installed a nice little tool on my blog called Snap Shots Enhanced with Snapshotsthat enhances links with visual previews of the destination site, interactive excerpts of Wikipedia articles, MySpace profiles, IMDb profiles and Amazon products, displays inline videos, RSS, MP3s, photos, stock charts and more. (Hint: Mouse over the previous examples to get an idea of what these snap shots can do!)

Sometimes Snap Shots bring you the information you need, without your having to leave the site, while other times it lets you "look ahead," before deciding if you want to follow a link or not.

Should you decide this is not for you, just click the Options icon in the upper right corner of the Snap Shot (it looks like a cog or tool icon) and turn it off.
