Is it worthwhile entering a certain webpage? You can now know without having to access it, thanks to the Firefox add-on called CoolPreviews. You will be able to view the contents of webpages by just clicking on the CoolPreviews icon, or simply moving the mouse over a link. Try out this innovating way of browsing the Internet.

Browse with a browser inside a browser.

How it works

Once you have installed CoolPreviews, each time your mouse is over a link, a small icon will appear next to it. If you click on it, a CoolPreviews window will open and you'll be able to see the contents of the link's website. Without closing the CoolPreviews window, each time your mouse hovers over a link, its contents will automatically appear. Once you get used to using CoolPreviews, browsing the Internet will become a totally different experience.


  • No need to open new windows or tabs on the browser to check the contents of a site.
  • Speed up your browsing, as the browser uses less resources.
  • Allows you to customize the CoolPreviews settings to adapt them to your needs.
  • You can choose websites on which previews will always be disabled.

Download CoolPreviews and try out a new way of browsing the Internet.

Requirements and additional information:
