What is Link-Preview?
Link-Preview is a revolutionary Chrome extension designed to provide a sneak-peek into the target URL when you hover over a link on any webpage. With Link-Preview, you get to see the favicon, title and a short overview of the linked website. This makes it easier to spot phishing links, broken links and save time by seeing important information in the preview rather than visiting the entire webpage. Navigate the web more safely and efficiently with Link-Preview.
