    Know which bit I mean?

    Example, I hover over a link and it shows me where the link leads. Is there any way I can get Safari to do that?

    Not sure if I'm in the right forum, but hopefully you can help!

    View - Show Status Bar

    Edit: Also, if you're using Safari 5, go to the Safari Extensions Gallery and download an add on called Gentle StatusBar, it's under productivity. Instead of the status bar being there all the time, it will just appear when you hover over a link.

    Hi, thanks.

    I'm running 5.0.3 - I've enabled the Status bar, works great, and I downloaded the extension, but it doesn't appear to be working? The bar is there all the time.

    EDIT - Nevermind. I installed and it needed updating! Ha, works now.

    Cool, don't forget to disable the standard built in status bar (View- Hide Status Bar). Otherwise you'll have two status bars :p
