Disable Snap Previews

By popular demand, I have disabled snap previews on my site (not over the whole world, like breaking the Internet).

For those of you that like the Snap preview, I haven’t heard from you. Comment here if you really want it back.

By the way, there is a way to disable Snap previews for all sites. Lifehacker mentioned it earlier this year.

So how do you do it? Simple:

3. On the Extras subnav, uncheck the “Enable Snap Preview Anywhere on this blog”

Can I ask why? Or can you post me to a post where you have mentioned this before.

I quite like snap preview – but I am keen to understand more well-thought through comments on it.

Thanks for posting – there have been a couple of comments somewhere in the blog of people not liking the Snap auto-preview. I too, find it annoying at times, especially when:

1 – I accidentally hovered over a link
2 – the page has not been queued, so the preview is meaningless
3 – other blog posts show up in RSS, so it’s difficult to read
4 – it slows me down

Part of me wanted to keep the feature, and maybe I’ll put it back in. Thanks for posting your thoughts on the subject!

Hi, I know this is an old post that I found through stumbleupon, but just wanted to let you know I actually love the snap previews. They are different from the text ads. Just thought you might appreciate the feedback for future reference. Cheers! 😉

I think it’s very annoying. If I wanted to see what the link was I’d click it. I don’t want to load something just because I accidentally moved my mouse over it.
