    I have seen something like what you are looking for. It is called Snap Shots.. You can see it on a live web site here Just hold the mouse over one of the links on the page and you will see the snap shots. Not sure if it's Java, Javascript or what but it may be what you are looking for,, It seems to be free but you have to register with the company. I have not used it for any of my web sites but it looks pretty good. Here is a link to their main page Also I found out you can install an add-on for your browser that will allow the snapshots for any web site including google searches and such.
