More About YouTube on Hover Preview

"YouTube™ on Hover" extension displays a floating panel player once your mouse is over a YouTube link. This is useful to preview YouTube links without the need to open them in separate tabs.

To hide the floating player, just click somewhere inside the page.

For your convenience there are some options:
1. You can either place the player at the center of the screen or just beneath the YouTube link with custom offset.
2. For the player to appear, keep hover over a link for 1 second. This option is useful to bypass YouTube links that are accidentally been hovered
3. Once a link is previewed, it will be stroked-through to be distinguished from other YouTube links that are still not visited. Note that the strike-though is not permanent. Reloading the page will remove all the decorations.
4. As of version 0.1.4, you can watch previews in "Turn of the Light" mode. Open options page to change this setting.
