Starjax, I was thinking about Internet Explorer because that is what one offered often enough in the Internet cafe, what I am really looking for a simple program, any would do but "stand alone" best.

a normal hyperlink will show at the bottom. however links can be malformed. They can even be a script instead of a link or even a linke to a script. In which case it doesn't matter what you do except to make sure your running windows xp with service pack 2. IE7 will help even more when its released.
I use firefox a lot. about 50% firefox and 50% ie. There is an extension for firefox called Spoofstick. It will actually display what sight your on "after" you go to the link. Its useage is aimed at the phishing sites.

btw, the phrase is "Don't applaud, just throw money" and the site is just my homepages. There's lots of stuff on there if you get bored while surfing sometime, and no spyware. LOL

I haven't understood what you meant by status bar in this case, but I do know that in a lot of time the site itself hides the infomation normally by having some logo in its place. So for example when I hover over your link in latin (saying "No post, my postbox's jammed" I imagine), I can see your www.johannanko.net link, ah but on some sites that line doesn't show, is there any way around this since, if there were, then a lot of people would be alble to avoid this pitfall and not link to the malware.
just as a note here...some people obscure the links on hyperlinks for a reason...they either don't want you to be able to link directly to whatever the hyperlink is....OR they want to trick you into clicking it to see where it goes....
