    Is there a way to view the address of a link by hovering the mouse over it?

    Example, in IE the link will show up on the bottom of the browser. Also in safari on the iphone, holding your finger on the link brings the address up in a "balloon" type box.

    Cant seem to find this feature...?

    you can either show the Status Bar from the View menu or "Go to URL" or "Copy Link" when you right click the link.

    View > Show Status Bar

    It's off by default. Next time you hover over a link the url will be displayed in the status bar.

    Slightly impractical, but if you select a link and drag the URL is also displayed.

    Partially. When I do that with the link to this thread as I reply I get http://forums.macrumors.com...php?p5715179#post5715179. That's obviously not all of the url address.
