Works really great. Only (very) annoying thing : Shift enables to open the preview link. Which is fine. But we need a shortcut to remove the preview and stay on the main page. Having to click outside the preview is often not really convenient. Thanks for coding that extension anyway. Really useful.

Hi Gidi, Wondering if you still maintain this lol This would be perfect for me, but I keep getting " Unfortunately, the website is refusing to load the content via an iFrame." after I see a 0.5second glimpse of the site (on Gmail btw). Anyway to fix that?

Gave a little sense of hope but then it kinda dissapointed me in the state it is right now, when I press the trigger button to have the preview it's great, a little big but alright why not, but when I release I do not want to go to the webpage, but it seems to be the current way it works, if you hold the trigger button the page load, but when you release the button it opens up the hovered link. This is not the expected way the addon should behave IMHO, when you hold the trigger button it should show the preview, when you release it, it should end the preview and make you able to continue to scroll. There seems to be a problem when using the escape button as holding the trigger button and then pressing escape button are shortcuts on windows that you do not want to press. Clicking on the escape button in the top right of the screen still opens up the previewed page.
