Quick Look websites in Mail.app before opening them

Did you know that you can preview a link in Mail.app before actually clicking on it? Me neither. Today I stumbled on the fact that Quick Look is built into Mail.app links.

When in an email, you can hover over a text link, and an icon appears that, if clicked, will launch a preview of the website you would be visiting without actually requiring you to visit it. It’s a great way to to see if you’re going to be sent to a new level of phishing-hell or if you’re being redirected to a legitimate website.

Pretty nifty and super useful.
