Preview any link in a pop-up frame without leaving current page (instead of opening a new tab), eliminating the need to go back and forth to navigate to other links. Very useful for exploring Google search results, Craigslist, Instagram, news feeds, etc. Also, search any text without leaving current page to look up for references, definitions, etc.

3. Drag the top bar to move the iFrame, drag the right bottom corner to resize it
4. Click outside the iFrame to close it
5. Text Search mode: Select any text to search, and click the tiny box to open search pop-up frame
6. Option page on browser toolbar button:
- Activate with Ctrl/Alt/Shift Key or their combination
