yay or nay?

[Most of this was copied, with permission, from the Snap Shots site. Saved myself some verbiage.]

I just installed a nice little tool on this site called Snap Shots that enhances links with visual previews of the destination site, excerpts of Wikipedia articles and IMDb profiles, inline videos, MP3s, stock charts and more.

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 “Disable” in the upper right corner of the Snap Shots bubble and opt-out.

Let me know if it aggravates. I find it easier on the download for us dial-up dinosaurs.

Now that I've added some graphics, it can be a bit annoying. I think I can add something to their link that stifles the snap shot, though.
Thanks for the vote! I hereby set the decision quorum for this issue to one fabulous reader.

My proposed application addition passes with flying colors!
