Your Opinion Requested

The Snap previews on the active links are a colorful, if unnecessary little touch that I added a few weeks back; anybody have an opinion for or against?

Over at the Boylston Chess Club Weblog the comments were mostly negative, so I am interested to see if it's aroused any strong feelings among my readers one way or the other.

I neither like or dislike them, but then I don't move my mouse all over the place when I surf the web, so they don't come up that often anyway :-)
They can get annoying in the few incidences when they get somehow stuck, though.

The big question, however, is if they provide some useful information. I don't see that I gain much from them being there at the moment, so I would not miss them if others vote so strongly against them such as at the Boylston blog.

Thanks for the input--also, I'll link your very interesting blog at my next links update!

The Snap previews are annoying. I can't disable them (clicking options followed by reload page doesn't work), they interfere with the search box (which I often have open when reading blogs: search on 'Posted by'), and they add no value. I tend to just move on when I see them; it depends on how much I want to read the blog. - Mark

P.S. The popup activated just now when I clicked on 'Post a Comment' here. What's the point?
