    I love bing.Thank you very much your sharing this information.Great information.I gained some knowledge from your posting.

  2. Re#1 – If you come to the conclusion that these hover links are just a nuisance, and you use Firefox, a simple approach is available. You need two Firefox addons (a) Adblock Plus and (b) Element Finding Helper for Adblock Plus. Whilst these can be somewhat complex, basic installing and use is very simple.

    You’ll use the Element Finder to point at what you want blocked, then that’ll add it to Adblock Plus, and voila.

    The exact same method will block Google’s hover previews too, and many other things you might want to block. Go easy though, in case you block a site to death!
