Hover your mouse over any image on the supported websites and the extension will automatically enlarge the image to its full size, making sure that it still fits into the browser window.

This is an open source version of the original HoverZoom extension which is now overrun by malware and deleted from store. In this version all spyware has been removed, many bugs were fixed and new features were added. It doesn't collect any statistics by default. The only permission it needs is to access data on all websites (to extract full images), and optional permissions to access browser history, download/save images or get tab urls for per-site configuration.

Sometimes sites change design and when it happens extension needs to be updated. Please report any issues with zoom not working by using Support tab or https://github.com/extesy/hoverzoom/issues page.

Essential extension for me but pictures and videos on reddit started loading very slowly since around two weeks ago... Wonder if it can be fixed?

I used to LOVE this extension, but it makes Facebook (and some other sites) completely unusable for me, especially on my Chromebook. I had to uninstall it. Sad. I hope they can fix it, I'd love to have it back.
