More web 2.0: Snap Shots

I'm catching up on days of RSS and several people seem to have installed something new called "Snap Shots." I like it because it provides a preview of where a link goes—you don't just find yourself somewhere else, you can look, first. Snap Shots that enhances links with visual previews of the destination site, interactive excerpts of Wikipedia articles, MySpace profiles, IMDb profiles and Amazon products, display inline videos, RSS, MP3s, photos, stock charts and more. (Can you tell that I copied this text off the Snap Shots site? What links should really be here?)

This may get tiring, or be just another bit of interference. 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.
