    For as long as I can remember when I scroll over a thread I can see a preview of whichever thread I’m scrolling over. However it only appears for 5 seconds or so which is not always enough time to get an idea of what the post is about. Is it possible to make it so that the preview is visible as long as we’re scrolling over it? It’s not a major issue but all small improvements add up. :D

    I second that, you have to hover over something else and come back to read it again :-(

    Those are tooltips, they are just the Alt text on the link - He would need to install something that uses javascript or other to make them stay. Maybe something like this:

    I hadn't realised they were just alt text... it would be good to install a proper preview.

    In Firefox they appear not to disappear after 5 seconds, if at all.

    Hey you're right about FF, I intend to use FF all the time but for some reason end up on IE :(
