My reader(sic) may notice that I have added Snap to my site and blog (if you have no idea what this is, hover over an external link and you’ll see). I suppose there are many arguments with regard to its usefulness but for now the novelty of it is tipping towards the ‘quite cool’ end of the scale.
I have to say it is a really good implementation, a doddle to integrate and it seems to render the page previews very quickly. Obviously, with my penchant for the funky client-side implementation, I’m always going to be a fan.
Does make me think that it could change the surfing dynamic a little if it takes off, people could perhaps see a lot less spurious hits with low wait time.
I first saw it being used on JP Rangaswami‘s excellent blog Confused of Calcutta which I would encourage you to read.
