Can Aurora Metro show weblinks on hover?

Posted

I noticed something stopping me from using Aurora for Windows 8 Metro, and that is the lack of a "show links on hover" mode. That, is whenever I hover the mouse pointer over a link, or I hold down a finger on a link, unlike in IE 11 (or in Aurora/Firefox desktop mode) the URL of the link does not appear.

This may not be the place to put this (I am sorry!), but I thought it would be something to highlight.

Thanks for the report. The Windows 8 style interface doesn't include tooltips yet, but we plan to add them in the future:
