If you have too many links to look through, the CoolPreviews browser extension for Firefox, IE, and Safari might be what you're looking for. It opens a preview window to any link you mouse over when you point your cursor to an individual search result. A small, translucent blue box appears. Mouse over that and CoolPreviews pops up a floating window with that link's contents.
The extension comes with many useful options. It allows the user to change the size of the pop-up window, e-mail the previewed link to a friend, and "stack" the link, which is CoolPreviews-speak for temporary bookmarking. You can prefetch pages into memory, which is helpful if you lack a broadband connection. By clicking on a link in the preview pane, it opens in the same pane, so there's no messy jumping around. Other features include changing the CoolPreviews activator from a mouse-over link to a click or adding a Control key into the mix to avoid accidental previews.
Attractive to anyone who spends considerable time parsing through search results and uncomplicated to use, CoolPreviews should have a broad appeal to those who want to cut down on needless page loading.
CoolPreviews (formerly Cooliris Previews) eliminates your hassle of having to click back and forth between your searches and the results pages, and thus losing context of what you're searching for. With CoolPreviews, you can conveniently preview links on any Web site, including Craigslist, eBay, Google, and Google Images. You won't have to open every single page. Just mouse-over any link or image thumbnail and you'll be able to preview the underlying Web page or picture without clicking.
