It is really a nice option to have to view the pictures on the websites in larger view to take a quick glance. We already covered an extension for the Firefox that allows to zoom in to thumbnails on Facebook a few days back. A similar extension is also available for Facebook if you are using Google Chrome.
Hover Zoom is an other nice and light weight extension available for the Chrome that allows to hover over the thumbnails to get zoomed in view. Strongest point for this extension is that not only works on Facebook but also many other websites including Wikipedia, deviantART, Flickr, Tweeter and many others.
This extension works on many websites including the following:
- Picasa Web Albums
- Windows Live Photos
Some additional features:
• Disable zooming for specific sites
• Enable zooming only for specific sites (white list mode)
• Adjustable delay and fading effect
• Zoom images only when a specific key is held down
• Semi-transparent zoomed images
Hover Zoom can be downloaded from the Google Extensions repository.
