    Hey guys,

    URLpop is a project I've wanted to get started for months now and is currently very much just an idea and a couple of comps.

    I'm a minimalist at heart and thus love browsing Safari with all bars/toolbars hidden. However, one piece of functionality I sorely miss is the ability to scan the status bar to see where the url I'm curious about will take me.

    I know there's a few other options out there ( comes to mind) but none work/look/feel the way I'd like them to.

    It would be activated simply by hovering over a link for 1 second (made that number up now, will have to test for ideal timing). Currently, I have plans for two display options that can be toggled in settings with a light and dark version of each:
    1. Basic: gives you the title of the page + and expandable, full-link
    2. Preview: the same as Basic, but ads a preview of the page (as shown)

    View the attachment for previews of both.

    Remember this is very early and still just an idea at this point. I have a few plans and things to play with, but want to keep it simple and sexy.

    It's late and I need to get some Zzz's :) Will post more info in the AM for those interested.

    I don't have the chops to code a Safari Extension but if anyone would like to take a stab at it, I'd love to get this thing built!

    Feedback is appreciated!

    It's an interesting idea. I can't help but think it would get bloody annoying though!

  5. An update to URLpop.

    This extension is moving along! I've included a short video of the interactions and how I see it working. Timings and animations aren't exact as I built it in Keynote.

    I originally tried Framer but figured I could bang it out quicker in Keynote. It still took me a while and I think moving forward I'll experiment more with Framer and Quartz Composer.

    Would love you know what you think!
