Flickr Tooltip Previews

You might have noticed that I’ve added tooltip previews of my Flickr links on my blog. When you mouse over a link to a Flickr picture, it will create a little floating image next to your mouse cursor.

Here are a few samples: Frost, Half Dome, Rose, Crater Lake, Brussels.
I’ve tested on IE6, IE7, Firefox 2, and Opera 9 on Windows. If you find a bug, let me know. I’ve made the code available here: flickr_tt.js. It’s pretty easy to install, but you may need an API key from Flickr.

I’d love to hear your comments. Is it useful or distracting? Any suggestions?
