    Default can the link details/object details info window be longer

    Is there any way to make the little window/box that appears at the bottom of the screen when you hover on a link/image etc., accommodate the full length of the details.
    It gets truncated when the details are long. I would like to see the full address of links, or the full details of the image etc, that I am hovered on.

    What you see for example is usually the first part of the address 'http:///www.somesite/ here/there/iam...."
    This is actually a bit useless, as only part of the data is displayed.
    Its beyond me why programmers do this. Its only half the job done.
    Why present someone with only a portion of the relevant data, its useless.
    If youre going to display or present something useful, well then make it useful.

    MS are notorious for doing the same thing.

    any ideas?

    If you change this line:
    Code:
    int text_width = static_cast<int>(popup_bounds.width() -
          (kShadowThickness * 2) - kTextPositionX - kTextHorizPadding - 1);
      url_text_ = gfx::ElideUrl(url, view_->Label::GetFont(), text_width,
                                languages);
    to this:
    Code:
    url_text_ = gfx::ElideUrl(url, view_->Label::GetFont(), 0,
                                languages);
    in here and rebuild the source it will do what you want. No clue how to build Chrome from source though.
    (Also not sure if the popup will be big enough to show it all, but it will try to!)
