What is Reddit Hover Text?
The 'Reddit Hover Text' is a Chrome extension that enables users to view the content of a text submission on Reddit without having to click on the link. Just by hovering over the link, the content is displayed in a box underneath. This extension is ideal for people who frequent self subreddits and provides a similar function as Hover Zoom does for images. It also includes features tailored to adapt to changes introduced by Chrome and Reddit for better user experience.
