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.
