    You young people today with your Snap and your Jive and your Google and your YouTuba. Back in my day, all we had was Yahoo and after walking through five miles of snow and lava to the university library and having to wait in line to use their one AT&T PC 6300 which cost more then an entire year’s college tution, we had to stand in our chair and yell out “Yahoo!” when we found what we were looking for….

    Anyway, some people like Snap and some don’t. I turn it off.

    Me too. I’ve turned it off on all my blogs and if I “experience” a blog that has the dang thing turned on then I click out never to return again.

    Questions:
    Does it crash IE6 as well?
    And do you lose the right click menu in IE6 like you do in IE7?

    Doesn’t crash IE6 but the right click goes away IIRC. Netscape 7.1 had issues with javascipts and divs and a lot more. 7.2 was a lot better which is one of the reasons why I use it myself.

    It doesn’t crash IE6, but boy, am I tired of hearing CLICKCLICKCLICKCLICK every time I move my cursor over a page, and not being able to click on links until AFTER the bloody Snap Preview box comes up.

    I find it annoying when it won’t get out of my way quickly enough. Astonishingly, it doesn’t crash Camino–sometimes it seems like the mailman walking past or a commercial coming on TV will crash Camino. I wonder how many of my readers have been seething in silence? Think I’ll disable it for the time being.

    Thanks for the turnoff tip, Ewingren! You’re my hero!

    I thought it didn’t work in the beginning, but you just have to refresh the page for the new options to take effect.

    Don’t get me wrong by the way. It has it’s uses and I can understand why folks like it. I just think the program needs some work.

    Indeed it appears that there have been changes made at “snap”.

    Yes it can be annoying, but you can set the time it takes to appear in the options panel. This is better, so that it doesn’t appear too quickly when you may just be right-clicking to open a link in another window.

    But isn’t the whole POINT of Snap that you can see where the link goes before you click on it? So that would defeat the purpose of the whole thing, wouldn’t it?

    Not when it is a link on a page that I know perfectly well where it goes, so I don’t need the right-click function to be disabled while the Snap preview jumps up in front of me before I get get the ‘click’ in …

    But the point of Snap is for your blog readers, not for the bloggers themselves. Most blog readers won’t already know where a link goes. That’s why Snap is called a “Preview”.

    I need snap on my blog, it was once there and now it isn’t when I changed layouts. I tried going to presentation – extras – and the box to enable snap was already checked… any ideas? I’m kind of lost.

    Snap has been a problem, at least in the past, and I don’t know if it’s been disabled or whether Snap is having problems.

    I’ve had so many problems with it that I keep it disabled on my blogs and I also keep it disabled for my browser as well.
