Change link mouseover text on the bottom of a browser window

You know that text that appears in the bottom left of your browser when you mouseover a link? How do you change that?

I'm a competent programmer so I don't need a code sample or handholding, but a high level approach would be great.




In old browsers, you could set the property window.status to modify the text in the status bar. Because this holds serious security issues (the user could be tricked into clicking on a link which leads to another target), all modern browsers deactivated this feature.


This can be done with javascript :

onmouseover="window.status='TEXT HERE'"

You can try the window.status property, however this isn't used often anymore as most browsers now block the status bar text from being updated.
