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?
