Peek

Peek is a browser extension that lets you preview dozens of types of documents before you download them. Just hover over a file's link, and Peek will display an interactive preview of the file instantly. Peek also allows you to expand a preview to a new browser window for easier viewing.

Peek supports previews for the following file formats:

  • PDF and RTF Files
  • Word Documents (.doc, .docx)
  • Excel Documents (.xls, .xlsx)
  • PowerPoint Presentations (.ppt, .pptx)
  • WebM, MP4, GIFV, and OGG/OGV Video
  • MP3 and WAV Audio

In addition to direct file links, Peek also supports previewing links to public Google Docs files, Imgur GIFV links, and Gfycat links.


New in Peek 2.2:

  • New design for welcome and settings pages
  • Previews are no longer created for HTTP content on HTTPS pages
  • Removed support for Flash video file previews
  • Updated jQuery and Tooltipster libraries to latest version
