<a href="example.html" onMouseOver="window.status='This sentence should become visible in the status bar of chrome'; return true" onMouseOut="window.status=' '; return true">Hover da mouse</a>
While the “window.status” command works correctly in the IE, it does not seem to work in Chrome. When hovering the mouse over the link, just the link adress is shown.
Solution: Actually no solution, at least I did not found out. Just the information that the ‘dom.disable_window_status_change’ is disabled in Chrome due to security issues. While you can configure it in FF by typing ‘about:config’ in the address, there is no such a ‘hack’ in Chrome.
However, if anybody does know a fix, feel free to comment. Thx.
