1. Hover Zoom+

7 Wonderful Extensions To Make Your Chrome Browser More Useful

This is quite a useful tool that allows you to zoom in on any image on the browser by hovering your mouse over it. The enlarged image can be viewed clearly on a simple pop-up window. This will come especially handy on sites like Reddit and Facebook that use small thumbnails for large images.

Hover Zoom will enlarge the thumbnail image to its full size and ensure that it still fits into the browser window. Moreover, the extension displays an image in its original resolution and even supports animated formats like GIF and GIFV. You can also use Hover Zoom to scroll through a list of images on photo-based platforms like Imgur without actually opening the site.
