I just installed a tool on this blog called Snap Shots, which enhances links with visual previews of the destination site, interactive excerpts of Wikipedia articles, and other tricks when you mouse over the little talk-balloon logos.
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.
I haven't decided if this is cool or annoying. It takes a while for the previews to load. Your feedback would be welcome.
Should you decide this is not for you, just click the Options icon in the upper right corner of the Snap Shot and opt out.
