Fork of hoverfree which is a fork of -- this Chrome extension will show an image if you hover its thumbnail or a link.

HoverFree is now deprecated and the developer highly recommends you try out as he's decided to discontinue support for HoverFree. Read why here: or see for discussion.


FreeImageZoom is for my own use and development. You are welcome to contribute but this is an unsupported application. FreeImageZoom will however follow HoverFree's philosophy:

FreeImageZoom will be free to use and help people preview a linked image.

FreeImageZoom will never inject advertising, referral links, adware, spyware, etc.

FreeImageZoom will never track or record browsing activity.


Easiest method is Chrome Web Store:

For manual installation, simplest method is:

git archive --format zip --output ~/ master
