This extension pops up a statusbar when hovering links, similar like in Chrome. This lets you turn off the native statusbar and save some screen estate[*].
Q: Will you add support for title attributes? And color configuration?
A: Yes, this will be added soon.
Q: This shit breaks some sites. What should I do?
A: Please report it to me. Either at https://github.com/hzr/popup-statusbar/issues (preferred) or at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll take a look ASAP. And please don't give a bad rating just because it breaks one site – it's most likely not my fault (no, really). Thanks! :)
Q: How do I turn off the native statusbar?
A: Shift-F12 > Toolbars > untick Status Bar.
Q: Ok, I did that, but now there are tooltips all over. How do I fix that?
A: Ctrl-F12 > Advanced > Browsing > Show tooltips.
[*] Assume the statusbar is 25 pixels high, and your screen is 1200 pixels wide. You just freed up 30000 pixels. Woo!
