Hi, I want everybody's opinion on a question I have. The "Snap" module is a service by http://www.snap.com/ which helps us know about links to external websites. I have it installed on this site, and it is what makes the popup window that appears when your mouse hovers over an external link.
The intention for installing this is to give y'all fair warning before visiting an external website. The Snap tool not only informs you it's an external link, but if you're patient enough it gives you a screenshot of the web page. It should make visiting external sites a little safer.
My question for y'all is whether to keep this tool or to ditch it.
Therefore, disabling this tool should make the site feel a little faster.
Therefore, we have a tradeoff between page load times and functionality which might be desirable.
And for the purpose of this discussion I should mention another module I installed recently. The external links on the site now have little blippy icons next to them The little blippy icon warns you "This is a link to an external site" but it doesn't show you this popup and the screen grab.
