The tyranny of mouseover

Jeremy points to the "Snap feature". Onmouseover, a screenshot of the site the link points to is shown. Extremely annoying, and even otherwise sensible sites seem to fall for it.

Let's make this "feature" ridiculous, OK? I mean, who needs it? It's kind of saying your visitors are too stupid to handle links. "Oh dear, this nasty thing leads AWAY from my site, but it'll bring you to this page, which is, like, ANOTHER site! Take care, or you might become confused."
