Status bar to display non-truncated links on mouseover.
Simple extension that does what it says. Nothing fancy.
- Displays complete link (href attribute) on mouseover. No more truncation.
- Displays complete Page Title five seconds after moving mouse off a link.
- Single-click bar to hide it until you mouse over another link.
- Double-click bar to hide it until you reload the page.
- Customize the look and location via CSS.
As a developer I was annoyed that Chrome's "status bubble" displayed truncated URLs and I couldn't see my query string variables. So I circumvented the problem and created my own status bar.
I put it in the lower-right corner instead of the traditional lower-left to reduce the likelihood of it being overlapped by Chrome's status bubble.
Doesn't handle frames/iframes very well. Encountered this bug - http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=20773. So looks like the frame issue won't be resolved until the browser bug is fixed.
1.53 - Fixed height (now uses height defined in options rather than hardcoded 16px row multiplier).
1.52 - Added option to disable in child frames. Necessary until frames bug is fixed.
1.50 - Added Options page to allow user to customize the CSS and Title delay.
1.41 - Single/double-click functionality. Implemented .live() to avoid having to worry about when links are created.
1.4 - Upon loading and 5 seconds after mousing off of a link, the full, non-truncated Page TItle is displayed (unlike in the tab at the top). Also, really long URLs now wrap and the bar height increases to the number of required lines.
1.3 - Prettied it up a bit and added both $(document).ready() and $(window).load() in case webpage doesn't finish loading
1.2 - Fixed https:// support
1.1 - Changed from $(document).ready() to $(window).load() to handle dynamic content
1.0 - Initial Release (August 5, 2010)
