    Ok, so I would like to know if it's possible to do something like this with a script:

    The idea is when you move your mouse over link it shows screenshot of the site.

    Thanks!

    There are two options you can go with.


    1. Having the link your hovering, literally load the website, and having it's dimensions resized, real time (that causes lag, and waiting).
    2. Having pre-rendered thumbnail images, for each link. It feels more fluent, of course if the website updates, you would need to update the image.

    I've tried to post a URL, but I'm now allowed to.

    Just do a Google search of "link + thumbnails", and it should be the first result.

    Thank you so much! :)
    Oh and can I have something like that load website for whole page even if I update it with new links?
