ezLinkPreview

Description from extension meta

Preview links in a draggable, resizable overlay/popup.

Image from store ezLinkPreview
Description from store ************ AS of Chrome Version 30.0.1599.69 m Google has disabled loading HTTP content into the preview when you are on a secure (HTTPS) page e.g. twitter, google, facebook, etc. (https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=238484) This prevents ezLinkPreview from working on those pages with any external links. Workaround now is to 1. Use the --allow-running-insecure-content flag which reduces security. To set command line flags: http://www.chromium.org/developers/how-tos/run-chromium-with-flags 2. Click the gray shield button on the right of the URL bar that appears after trying to preview a page, then click load unsafe script. Page will reload and you can now preview HTTP sites. ************ Browse more efficiently: Preview links and images without leaving your current tab. Mouseover any link and click the 'ez' icon (or press ALT and mouseover link) to show the linked page in a separate preview overlay or split screen. This is somewhat similar to the now defunkt FireFox CoolPreviews plugin and Cleeki. For support, bugs, enhancements please use this google group instead of the user reviews: http://groups.google.com/group/ezlinkpreview ezLinkPreview finds all http links on a page. - Hovering over a link, fades in a small 'ez' icon at the upper right corner. - Click or hover over the 'ez' icon to open a preview overlay of the link within the current tab - Interact with the new page and even launch another overlay from within the current overlay. - Open the overlay contents in a new tab by clicking a button in the titlebar. Left click focuses on new tab, middle click leaves new tab in background. - Pin/unpin the overlay by clicking a button in the titlebar. - Close the overlay by clicking titlebar button, pressing Escape key, or clicking outside the overlay. - Unpinned, moving mouse outside overlay closes it. - Pinned, moving mouse over other links in the page loads them into the overlay. - Resize overlay by dragging any corner or side. - Resize split screen by dragging vertical split bar - Move overlay by dragging the titlebar. - Pinned overlay stays on screen when scrolling the page. - Pinned state is saved and remembered accross pages and sessions. - Minimize/Restore the preview to quickly read text under the preview window. TIP: Pin the overlay and mouseover other links while the preview is open. NOTE: some sites do not allow themselves to be run in frames/overlays and this will cause an actual navigation to the URL. - See extension options page for the many available customizations. Choose to open preview on mouseover link without showing ez icon. Choose to locate ez icon near the mouse cursor instead of the upper right of the link. Exclusion list to the options page. If the current URL includes any of the text items in the exclusion list, ezLinkPreview will be disabled for that page. open in new tab list. URLs that contain items in this list will open a new tab instead of the preview window. Use this for sites that disable openning in IFRAMES. Choose where the preview popup opens by default: top-right, top-left, bottom-right, bottom-left, or center. Require click on ez icon or allow hover and click. Change the ez icon size. - Keyboard shortcuts: Press Ctrl+Alt+1 (number one) on a page to toggle whether ez icon displays or preview opens on hover.

  • (2019-12-21) Boris Raifler: Very convenient. Thanks! There are a few suggestions. 1. In split mode there are search icons. I would like to have them also in preview mode. 2. When the text is selected, a grid with 9 search icons (3x3) appears. Is it possible to be able to set the number of icons, for example 3x4 or 4x3 or 2x2? Thanks Очень удобно. Спасибо! Есть несколько предложений. 1. В сплит режиме имеются иконки поиска. Хотелось бы иметь их и в превью режиме. 2. При выделении текста появляется сетка с 9-ю поисковыми иконками (3х3). Нельзя ли иметь возможность задавать число иконок, например 3х4 или 4х3 или 2х2?
  • (2019-12-03) Saeed Daneshi: very good and useful .
  • (2019-11-24) Laura Joe: Awesome, it would be perfect if on split screen preview it doesn't refresh the original page, and if i could have a hotkey to close the preview.
  • (2019-11-03) 科技實用真實科技: i'm from taiwan, I wanna say this app so convinient,I have used one year,thanks developer
  • (2019-10-29) Mitchell Teeters: I REALLY liked this at first but a couple issues have come out in the wash. I'm in a job that requires more attention to detail than usual. When viewing a popup and I need to go to that page it sometimes loads a previous, page. This is a critical issue since I'm needing to input relevant info THAT page, if I get the wrong page........, I was getting pretty frustrated until I realized what was happening, now I just have to watch it. I thought it was me at first but I've seen it while watching for it. Second issue, which is not as critical, is the PDF viewing. I've found that I will have to refresh the PDF several times (no rhyme or reason to the number of refreshes) before I get the image. That is a delay, but minor. The main issue needing addressed is the incorrect page opening. I have found this to be a major time saver so that I don't have to completely open a new page to take a peek, but opening the wrong page is the issues IMHO.
  • (2019-10-27) Romans 6:23: This extension is AMAZING. I get to preview stuff quickly when i use this extension i.e youtube videos and google links. I don't get to waste time reading irrelevant articles or watch irrelevant videos with click bait titles when i use this extension so thank you :)
  • (2019-10-15) aditya aggarwal: can you make it work on google sheets
  • (2019-10-07) Golden Eyes: this is one of those useful extensions for chrome there are some minor issues. let's see how it goes. personally speaking, I think UI design need to be more modernized and sophisticated. yet Overall, this sure is a very useful extension and worth installing

  • (2019-09-11) City 348: Update: It messes with .PDF links causing a blank view completely failing to display any PDF for about a week or two. Due to some functionality and the lack of alternatives, i do not lower my present rating. I'll keep searching an alternative. Good idea but bad design. Ezlink preview icon pops up too close to the link accidentally causing misclicks over and over again, that is very annoying. Not very configurable. Oh I miss those days with beautiful addons for Firefox until Firefox decided to act and appear like Chrome making the world more mediocre place unfortunately and killing the need to use the Mozilla Firefox. Shame.
  • (2019-09-02) jun v: 这个超级好用,速度也很快。用过Google Results Previewer插件,预览很慢,加载不出来。

I reset to default settings, turned off and re-enabled extension, nothing worked. Any ideas how to fix? I want to keep using it, not uninstalling it. Pls help tho, otherwise it's pointless to keep on my PC! Thanks.
  • (2019-08-01) Papa Kanoc: a kereső jó ötlet, de nem működik megfelelően. több beállítás lehetne a személyre szabáshoz. de mindenképpen figyelemre méltó a program!
  • (2019-07-07) Sojiro84: Great extension but I would like to have a option to have a whitelist. I only want to use it for a few sites, but right now, it works on all the sites except those on the blacklist.
  • (2019-07-01) GM Murugan: few little design issue with color. provide some customization

  • (2019-05-20) Leandra Denmark: This is one of my favorite extensions. Being able to preview links in a popup saves me so much time and irritation. I have definitely noticed an increase in my productivity.
  • (2019-05-15) 王冬: Excellent extension. Love it.
  • (2019-05-09) Han Solo: Outstandingly useful BUT for some reason more than 40 or 50 % of the links simply never load a preview. Even links from a same website (I mean all very similar) will display some pages, but some others NEVER load. That's very glitchy. Please try and check what causes that. Happens on all web sites I tried. Should be ultra easy to reproduce the bug.
  • (2019-04-28) barbudo 2005: Ezlink is a excellent extension but I find that I have to resize the pop-up window everytime. Could you include a custom height and width in pixels so they mantain the size. Thank you very much in advance. I am using Iframe-Master from Opera. Is more simple but mantain de size: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WcF_0n99gdaGio6DBdBhEtpVJlmGCKRp
  • (2019-03-20) Aleksey Midenkov: Ugly like all "ez..." products (there is something common in authors who do such strange names). But it does its job and does it almost well!
  • (2019-03-04) Ruben: Thanks you !it is a real good expansion!

  • (2019-05-05, v:6.23) Dan D: Some web pages won't load correctly with ezLinkPreview turned on.
    I love ezLinkPreview - very useful extension but I've discovered some web pages will not load correctly with it enabled. One such page is https://www.travelchannel.com/sweepstakes/big-texas-getaway?xp=SweepsNewsPage_TRVLTX. There is a text box and a button that says Begin Entry that don't display when ELP is enabled. I tried turning a lot of the options for ELP off and then reloading the page, all to no avail. Any suggestions?
  • (2019-04-14, v:6.23) Frederick Peters: No Scrollbars
    Not sure when, but I noticed scrollbars no longer appear in your preview regardless of the preview window size or zoom.
