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.

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required. The only down side is there will be an ad web browser tab popping up in every twenty minutes while you are using it. Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Download appropriate version from here. ( via )
