Description

There are several bugs that discuss problems with link mouseover, and how it can
be spoofed or broken.

One problem is that you can use JS to change the mouseover value displayed.
Since this has to do w/ JS being able to write to status, perhaps we should give
networking its own status field?

I've often wondered if someone would eventually write an exploit where they use
JS to fake accessing other website by writing stuff like "resolving host,
transfering data, done" into the status bar.
