Safari extension highlight: Facebook Photo Zoom

With the addition of the Safari Extensions Gallery to Apple's website, TUAW will be highlighting extensions that we think are special, useful, or just plain fun.

Here's one from the "fun" category. As Facebook overtakes the Internet and our collective consciousness, we're spending more and more time there. How else will I be forced to look at photos of people's kids? Speaking of photos, they're small in the timeline and enlarging them means loading a new page. Who has time for that?

Facebook Photo Zoom solves the problem. Once installed, you can enlarge any photo you find in Facebook simply by mousing over it. What's really nice is that you can turn it on and off without having to open Safari's preferences. At the bottom of any Facebook page you'll see a small button (right next to the chat). Just click it to enable or disable the extension.

Now go and enjoy large photos on Facebook while saving yourself precious seconds.
