Weekend Hack Idea : Improving time spent on wikipedia

Wikipedia is greatest wonder the web has created.It is an indispensable tool and the go-to-place when you have to know about anything new.
But when doing research for some writing project, normally people end up with lots of tabs [for me it is 12-20 ] after opening inline links in new tab.And after an hour at times you end with something entirely different from what you had initially planned to know about or thinking about wasted time doing ninja moves while switching tabs as the tab title isn’t visible anymore.

manyTabsTIP: CTRL+tab buttons will help you switch tabs from left to right. CTRL+SHIFT+TAB will switch tab from right to left.

I plan to make a chrome extension which can be helpful for researchers so their productivity increases.
The idea is simple : when mouse hovers over a wiki link fetch the content asynchronously and show it in a popover. wiki snippets!
