    Custom Link Messages

    How do I change the message that comes up in the bottom bar in browsers on a link hover?

    (i.e. the one that by default contains the URL)

    I stay away from that.. IMO. I know when I go and visit a site and hover over a link, I normally look at the status bar to see where the link is pointing before I ever click. If I get one of those browser hijackers (IMO) that take that feature away from me, I feel as if they are trying to hide where that link is pointing so I'll never click.

    agreed.
    messages that replace the url (so 1997) are a waste of time and the url address is a very useful feature of the browser.

    I agree with both of the beforementioned opinions.

    Oh yeah, I totally agree, but this is for a personal project, so I think I can be excused. I wouldn't use it for a client.
