As using scripts with Craigslist goes, this tool is by far the BEST one yet. No more waiting for individual page downloads, and no more multiple tabs just to see the post. This tool shows each post in it's entirety (along with pictures) simply by floating your mouse over the post title. Real Billy should be given an award for this script! IMPORTANT: Be sure to see Jefferson's Edit - see: http://userscripts.org/topics/120127 - as his genius bought the tool back to life after having been down for awhile (the edit returned the script to "working order" as of 12/21/2012).
others make image clutter
this one focuses on just what you are interested in and then gives you the detail
this works like clockwork without the click

There are other scripts out there with more functionality, but none as simple and elegant as this one. Been using it for years.
Unfortunately the script is no longer maintained by the developer.
You must make 1 change to the source code for it to work.
It appears that around the end of June 2010, CL started blocking this script by blocking the user-agent it passes during xmlhttprequest calls. It passes "monkeyagent". To make the script work you need to edit the source after installing (using the Edit function in Greasemonkey when managing user scripts). Change the text "monkeyagent" near the end of the script to something different or a random string. This fixed the script for me.
I have tried them all and even built some of my own and this is the only one that works reliably.
The hover works just like you want it to and the size is easy to read.
I love enhancements like this. It really helps the user experience.
Apartment searching is easier!
i love this script - super handy for just browsing thru craigslist and works great! i like that the preview window matches the rest of the layout.
This script dramatically improves craigslist browsing and saves a ton of time... No opening 30 tabs at once then sorting through them individually. No more navigating back and forth from the post board...
Great Greasemonkey Script for Craigslist works great with both the following:
1. Firefox Addon "CLPicView"
2. Greasemonkey Script "Craigslist locations filter + image preview"
All 3 of these are essential for a fully functional Craigslist.
