Facebook Photo Zoom is a pretty cool Chrome extension that helps you quickly preview photos in your Facebook news feed and profiles. That means you don’t need to open a picture and wait for it to load in order to check it out.
With the extension enabled, you an just hover the mouse cursor on any photo, and it instantly pops up a preview of the original photo that the user uploaded. No hassle and no complex options to go through.
The extension’s setup page offers advanced settings like the ability to enable or disable the tool, option to show captions, selecting a keyboard shortcut (the default is Ctrl+Shift+Z), selecting fade in and fade out delays in milliseconds, and more.
After you start using this extension, you’ll also find a small icon just beside your chat list in Facebook. That’s the button to quickly turn it off or on, whenever you need to.
Overall, this extension could help you use Facebook productively considering the time you’ll save in photo navigation. Now, with such extensions, or as a matter of fact with any browser extension, you might have a privacy breach fear. That’s always the caveat, but the developer in this case is a verified author so you need not worry.
