v0.1.6 Long click instead of hover

Have you ever been in the middle of an article and seen a few links that direct you to who knows where? You're usually curious about where it'll take you. Maybe it's a cool supplementary picture, or video. Maybe it's a wikipedia article that helps bolster some facts. If you're like me, you probably never clicked on these links. It's a hassle, and breaks you away from the flow of the article.

This extension grabs whatever's hiding in those links and displays it quickly and seamlessly on the same page of your article. Just long-click over the styled links!

No veo que haga algo, al contrario cuando presionaba el boton de enmedio me abria 2 pestañas identicas y con el boton derecho actuaba como si fuera el boton de enmedio.

La idea me gusto mucho pero tiene problemas no todas las paginas las carga, la mayoría de las veces me sale un error de que "se rechazo la conexión."
