When moving the mouse pointer on an image, other browser usually display the
alt="bla" text given in the image tag in a "tooltip" style, meaning a little
yellow rectangle pops up and displays the text.
Many sites use this for additional explanations of the graphical elements of
their UI and I, personally, find it very helpful.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load any page with images
2. Move mouse pointer on image

Actual Results:  nothing

Expected Results:  alt-text should pop up
Web authors need to use title="bla" for tooltip information. alt="bla" is used
when images are not fetched. Please read the W3C specs for additional
information. I have provided the links for you:

Agree with H-J. And this behavior is as it should be.
So if you want tooltips to be displayes on image then use title="".
Marking as inavlid.
