Snap

Already tired of the relatively new Snap “feature” that pops up an annoying little preview balloon over every hyperlink on certain web sites? Well, it turns out it’s pretty easy to get rid of them, everywhere. Just click here to disable the feature using cookie technology (or, go to the Snap page that discusses deactivation and click the link from there).
