Fork of hoverfree which is a fork of hoverzoom.net -- this Chrome extension will show an image if you hover its thumbnail or a link.
HoverFree is now deprecated and the developer highly recommends you try out http://my.opera.com/Deathamns/blog/opera-extension-imagus as he's decided to discontinue support for HoverFree. Read why here: http://goo.gl/g1Qi1k or see http://goo.gl/apOKxa for discussion.
FreeImageZoom is for my own use and development. You are welcome to contribute but this is an unsupported application. FreeImageZoom will however follow HoverFree's philosophy:
FreeImageZoom will be free to use and help people preview a linked image.
FreeImageZoom will never inject advertising, referral links, adware, spyware, etc.
FreeImageZoom will never track or record browsing activity.
Easiest method is Chrome Web Store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/
For manual installation, simplest method is:
git archive --format zip --output ~/FreeImageZoom.zip master
