Microsoft Edge Lets You Disable Tab Hover Card Images Forever

Remember tab previews in Classic Edge? They are available in the new Microsoft Edge Chromium as “Card images on hover“. New Edge lets you disable them via a new setting if you find them intrusive when navigating between tabs.

When you have many tabs open, you can quickly preview the contents of a tab without switching to it by hovering over it. The feature available in Edge Legacy has arrived in the new Microsoft Edge and Chrome browsers.

Google Chrome initially implemented the feature as tab cards to show domain name and tab title on hover. Chrome used to display the information in a tooltip.

The feature has been replaced (and expanded) with the addition of a page thumbnail.
