Reddit Hover Text

Chrome extension that displays the contents of Reddit text submissions in a box under the link when you hover on the link. Does the same thing Hover Zoom does for images but for text submissions. Very convenient if you read a lot of self subreddits.

    Reddit Hover Text in action

I wrote this for my own convenience when browsing primarily text based subreddits. It uses the Chrome Extension API to modify the behavior of reddit. I fetch the full text of the post via the Reddit API and display it in a box under the link similar to what you get when you press the [Aa+] button displayed on text posts.
