    Bill, thanks for this post, I’d not heard of CoolPreviews before. I’ve just installed it to my browser and I must say it’s excellent. What a great time saving tool it is, the stacking feature is brilliant.

    Only trouble is, I’m playing around with so much that I’m not getting much work done 🙂
