How to turn off popup page preview in Google search results

Did you enjoyed this feature ? This fancy useless annoing popup page preview images ? Ohh yeess... There is no way to turn it of using some kind of chekbox, so here is the solution for this.

1) Install Firefox extenstion called Grasemonkey - https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/

2) Install script for Grasemonkey that will disable this shit - http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/90222 just click on install button at this page.

3) Say goodbye to page preview popups. Enjoy.

I believe it's hard to implement this kind of feature from technical perspective. I mean preview of web page. You have to deal with rendering HTML, CSS, JavaScript... a lot of work, but...

From user's perspective it's useless bullshit !

Java code block in JIRA

This is just small hint on JIRA usage.

If you want to post some source code example in JIRA issue, please use code blocks ! Other vice you'll have a chance to see fancy smiles instead of certain pieces of code. I saw it few times, very annoying...

It's not hard at all:

{code} public static void main(String[] args)  {code}

Other languages are also supported.
