This is a greasemonkey script to allow you to select a region of text containing links, and then create a new page where these links appear as a vertical column on the left opening in a larger pane to the right. A use case of this is when you'd like to run down a list of links quickly previewing them without opening them in separate windows.
Once installed, here's how you use this thing.
Whenever you visit a page with some links, select them in the normal style, making sure (for the time being) that you pass the mouse over every link of interest, and then a 'preview' link will appear1.
When you click this 'preview' link you will get a new page, with
the links collected in a left pane opening in the center pane.
- 1You can also click 'Show preview' from the toolbar as Tools → Grease Monkey → User Script Commands → Show Preview, if the 'preview' link doesn't appear.
- Install firefox.
- Install greasemonkey.
- Go to the link preview.user.js a click the Install button in the upper right. If you don't see this button you haven't installed greasemonkey correctly -- in which case return to step #2.
