What is Hover Zoom+?
Hover Zoom+ is an Edge extension that enhances your browsing experience by automatically zooming images/videos on all your favorite websites. By simply hovering your mouse over an image on a supported website, the extension enlarges the image to its full size while ensuring it fits into the browser window. This open-source version is free of malware, offers enhanced security, and does not collect user statistics. The only permission required by this extension is to access data on all websites to extract full images and optional permission for browser history, downloading/saving images, and acquiring tab URLs for per-website configuration.

Summary
Analyze keywords

Zoom images/videos on all your favorite websites (Facebook, Amazon, etc). Hover your mouse over any image on the supported websites and the extension will automatically enlarge the image to its full size, making sure that it still fits into the browser window.

This is an open source version of the original HoverZoom extension which is now overrun by malware and deleted from store. In this version all spyware has been removed, many bugs were fixed and new features were added. It doesn't collect any statistics whatsoever. The only permission it needs is to access data on all websites (to extract full images), and optional permissions to access browser history, download/save images or get tab urls for per-site configuration.

Sometimes sites change design and when it happens, the extension needs to be updated. Please report any issues with zoom not working by using Support tab or https://github.com/extesy/hoverzoom/issues page.

At First I thought this didn't work but after going to some sites I see that High Quality Images gets a Hover Zoom. This Extension works great. Not Just for Images but Gif, WEBM. and Videos as well.
