Description from store Formely Iframely for Gmail only, we know show you inline previews and embeds on any other website too. So you don't have to interrupt your browsing experience. Iframely plugin is simple script that looks for plain URL links on pages you visit and appends [show] to its end. Once you click on [show], Iframely will grab the URL preview and show it just under the link. Click [hide] to close the preview. That's it and pretty sweet. Note: no longer works for Gmail as they changed their security policy and do not allow 3rd party iFrames any longer. Some tech details for those who care: * Iframely is a simple script that detects link anchors with text matching the destination href. * We don't get any of data on your pages and only call our code when you click on [show] * The source code of the plugin is open-source, if you'd like to check: https://github.com/itteco/iframely-gmail * Plugin is powered by Iframely Cloud API (http://iframe.ly).

  • (2014-02-22) Needs an option to disable the embedding during compose
  • (2013-11-09) Juan Carlos Rodriguez: No sirve para nada. Sólo aparece en algunos mails y tiene un link para ampliar la lectura. Nada práctico ni completo.
  • (2013-09-25) Nazar Leush: Makes web sharing by email better. Now I can see photos, watch videos and read articles just in my mailbox. Converts usual inbox into web reader.

    Hi, Here's a suggestion. I would be nice to have an menubar icon that enable us to set on/off the tool for particular pages. The tool add [show] link to any pages, even tools pages like github, taiga, slack... and I wished that I could select if the extensions should do it or not.

    Привет! То есть всё плохо и Iframely работать не будет? Можно сносить или вы будете развивать проект? Вообще это очень крутая задумка.

    hi! thanks for writing this. I am not able to see the iframely preview of a youtube link in my gmail. its just a big blank space even after waiting awhile. I was wondering if this happens because I have 'adblock plus' extension running? thanks.
