On prompting from Rich Sharples, who has implemented a web services hyperlink preview facility on his blog, Mirrorworld, together with a really cool look and feel. (Its in multi-tone grey, so its cool in more ways than one), I have now done the same. You can preview hyperlinks in this blog, without opening a tab. The service provider is at Snap Preview Anywhere and I have now implemented this on this blog and on my aggregation server, planetdavelevy. You can browse my bookmarks and preview them, by viewing them at the planet. It also works on links where the anchor text is an image, try hovering over the "Innovate on Solaris" button at the top of my sidebar!
You need write access to the <head></head> section of your page, so I can't implement this on Snipsnap.
