I've Safari 2 on my eMac and Safari 3 on my MacBook.
I accidentally installed Cooliris on Safari 3.
Now I constantly get a mini preview window on every link AND word the mouse hovers over.
The preview window is always the same: "can't find entry for..."

I've uninstalled, re-installed and uninstalled again. I've used AppZapper and gone through the entire set of Libraries to remove any references in the Input Manager folders etc. Restarted yet still the damn windown appears.

Emptying the cache and resetting Safari doesn't work either.
Reinstalling Safari is not an option since there is no stand alone installer.

Pile of crap!

Cooliris for Safari is too intrusive. Simply mousing over a link brings up the preview. At least the Firefox version requires that you mouse over the little blue square if you want the preview. I prefer to have the choice.

I think I'd like this a lot more if there were the option to only pop-up if a settable set of modifier keys are held down. As it stands I find it a bit bothersome, mostly popping up when I don't really want it to. Better still, with it only activating with modifier keys, perhaps it could be made to work on any link on any page, not just certain web sites.

I like and dislike this extension...The lovely part is that today it opened up a preview window from a problematic link that crushed my Safari. The downside is that the accidential mouse-over link will trigger the pop-up windows, that often distract me in the middle of my search...

Works great with lists such as rss feeds to MacUpdate, CraigsList, etc. A bit annoying and large when you don't need it and it keeps appearing (I think there's an option to disable it, though, just haven't used it yet). A truly unique utility, though. Wish there was a fast key to close it, and the ability to use download links without navigating to the actual page...

Works well with French version of Safari. Instantaneous preview is a really priceless feature when doing research (it would become obtrusive if applied to all links). Many thanks to the developer of this!

Doesn't seem to be multi-language aware. So if I startup Safari in Dutch, the View menu (which is the Weergave menu in Dutch) doesn't show me the menu option to enable or disable Cooliris Previews.

This plugin doesn't make sense. And why not support ALL links from ANY site? Google is NOT the internet...
