If you visit my blog regularly, you may have noticed something new. When you mouse-over a link, a preview of the website that is linked to pops up. This nifty service is provided free of charge via a snippet of code from Snap.

While there is some discussion online that ugly sites tend to provide better information, I'm not a believer. I do tend to judge a site by the first page I visit, and if it's not easy to navigate or pleasing to look at, I abandon ship rather quickly. By installing the Snap code on my site, I'm hoping to give you a better browsing experience. You get a little taste of the site before deciding if clicking on the link I've provided is worth your time.

So what do you think? Is this helpful or just another web distraction?

While I appreciate the "Wow, this is cool" value of the addition (that was my first reaction), I also found it to be an annoyance. I personally frequent your blog because I value what you have to say; if I'm interested in anything you Link, I'll go to it. Thus, please chalk up my vote in the "It's a distractor" column.
I know I'm the first to Comment and provide feedback, so please wait to hear from others before making a decision (I may be a false negative). And, please know that I truly appreciate your using this modality to "ask and test" the feature -- good for you!

I like it! But doesn't it slow down the loading of your site?
