Mozilla shouldn't try to fix what isn't broken Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This add-on fixes Firefox again, after they removed (for whatever political decision) the status bar, without giving the *user*, the very entity the software is supposed to be developed for, the ability to decide whether they want it or not.
A permanent status bar removes the obnoxious introduction of a new UI element into the site every time your mouse hovers over a link, and instead provides a dedicated area for the information that you can look at when you need it.
Must-Have Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This add-on is an absolute must-have. Showing me the true link in the status bar, and then switching it out just as I click on it (without ever telling me or even giving me the option to opt out) is a very underhanded move. Definitely not what someone who says they go by "don't be evil" should do.
Since Google will start tracking you like this randomly, this add-on is best on every computer that you help maintain - as Google, even if they aren't yet, can start monitoring you any day.
