His wife-to-be looked at him like, “Oh, my god, what totally embarrassing thing are you about to say?”
It turns out he really hates my SnapShots. You know, the little boxes that pop up every time you mouseover an external link. Like this:
He said he understands that I use them because they make me money, though. But, um, they actually don’t. I put them there for you. So that you know what you’re clicking on before you click. And in the case of Wikipedia links, you can actually read the definition of whatever I’m linking to without even clicking on the link.
But that isn’t the first time someone’s told me that he hates it. Another friend said that if he didn’t know me, he would’ve exited my blog the first time one of those things popped up and never looked back.
So, how do you feel about them? Love them? Hate them? Never even notice them?
