SwiftPreview: Chrome Extension to Instantly Preview any Link in a Customizable Tooltip

Chrome is one of the fastest and feature rich browsers, but apps can make it even better. SwiftPreview is such a simple extension that can preview any link including YouTube video, in a customizable tooltip before you click the link. Therefore, you can see the actual website behind the link and it is quite useful, especially if the link is shortened.

The latest version of SwiftPreview offers faster and dynamic instant previews. It can zoom Facebook photos, preview any image URLs, and preview YouTube `videos, option to show previews only when shift key is pressed and more.

Why SwiftPreview? Clicking an unknown link, especially a shortened link to open the site in your browser is likely a security risk. I am not claiming that this add-on will give protection against internet threats, but you can use this free tool to preview a link without clicking it.

You can install SwiftPreview from Chrome Web Store.
