Xmarks Thumbnails For IE

Xmarks Thumbnails for IE A little over three months ago Google announced beta support for extensions in the Google Chrome browser. One of our engineers Will decided it was time to try making an extension for Chrome and looked for a fun project to start with. He took our website preview image data and created a simple but powerful extension that adds preview images to your Google and Bing search results.

We thought it was pretty cool, but weren't sure how many of our users would find it useful. The answer, it turns out, is quite a few! After three months we have over 26,000 users of our Chrome extension Xmarks Thumbnails.

It's been so successful that we've decided to create an extension for Internet Explorer, as well. Our new extension, Xmarks Thumbnails for IE, is available for download today! Give it a try and let us know what you think. Feedback is welcome at our support page.
