Search & Link Previews
A browser extension for previewing links and search results without opening new tabs.
Several features (including certain URL previews) of this extension may not work in this demo due to inability to access the relevant Chrome Extension APIs / UIs from a page context.
You can trigger and update the demo (floating panel) by selecting text and clicking "Search".
You can trigger the preview functionality by hovering over a link like this Wikipedia article on ChatGPT.
Keep fewer tabs open
No need to open a new tab just to check the definition of Floccinaucinihilipilification. Highlight it and click "search".
It can premptively load search result pages for an almost instantenous view of websites.
Beyond search, the extension provides quick actions like "copy" and "email" based on the selection context
The preview pane can be dragged, resized, minimized, expanded into a full tab and a whole lot more.
Popular search engines
You can choose from Google to Bing, Baidu, Yandex, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo and Ecosia.
Over 50 locales supported
You may use the extension in any of the global languages supported by Chrome.
All extensions are open-source, free, offline-first, privacy friendly and internationalized to all 50 supported browser locales
This is my solution to the too-many-open-tabs problem. Opening a new tab is easy, closing it is hard. This extension helps by showing links and search results in a preview pane inside the current tab, that way I don’t have to open a new tab in the first place.
