YouTube Preview is an add-on for Firefox browser that lets you watch YouTube videos by just hovering mouse over video thumbnail. You just have to hover over the desired video thumbnail or title for 2-3 seconds and it will pop up a video player window in which you can watch it. It provides all video controls, you can move the pop-up window to anywhere on the screen and you can even switch the pop-up video to full screen mode or just close it.
When we search for our desired video on YouTube, it shows us a long list of relevant videos. Now we have to watch them by clicking on them one by one and then wait for the video to open and load on its page. It’s such a time-consuming process. To avoid such irritating situation YouTube Preview comes in handy. Just hover mouse over any video to get a quick playback of the video.
