yeah...maybe nice, maybe not...a preference would feel strange
considering that a lot of stuff isn't configurable that feels a lot more

This feature is very interesting. It's a feature IE has had for quite
some time, and is even more useless there. In IE to get the image
fullsize you have to hover over the image for like 2 or 3 seconds before
a toolbar pop-ups that lets you expand it. Totally annoying and
useless. How often do users prefer an image that fits in the frame over
having it fullsize immediately and scrollable? I find myself pressing
an image before it has even completed loading, as I can't tell what I'm
looking at otherwise. I mean, usually an image, such as a screenshot,
is linked to from a thumbnail and thus I've already seen what the small
version of the image looks like, now I would like to see the whole
image. So image resizing adds nothing but an extra step to the process.
