In Chrome URL statusbar tooltip bubble sometimes stops appearing on link hover.

More info
This style mocks it.

Relevant Chrome bug is

Unlike native tooltip bubble displays even form targets.

This style is just a silly hotfix with own bugs:
- real HREF attribute value is shown, not computed URL. (It might be a benefit as well :])
- if page styles :after content of link, it disappears during hover
- cannot get out of iframes
- focused link does not generate buble (no way to nicely replace :focus bubble with :hover of other link when both are in effect)

2014-03-14 brutalized and fixed wrong positioning in certain cases, correct placement in viewport corner (window, iframe) should be ensured now. Added form target display.
2017-02-17 letter spacing and text transform corrected (Interesting, original bug reappeared after three years…)

Applies to:
all URLs
