What is Link Revealer?

'Link Revealer' is a Chrome extension designed to put control back in the user's hands. It reveals the URL of any clickable link when the mouse hovers over it, adding an extra layer of security and awareness to your browsing experience. This tool is especially useful as modern browsers often hide status bars, obscuring where a link will lead. Future enhancements are planned to further enhance the user experience.

You are probably asking yourself why this extenions was made for...well this, believe it or not, were made because modern browsers like Google Chrome are going to hide at the most the status bar of the url you're going to click. So i hope with this that you're going to know more where are you going to surf to. But this extensions will not end up here, we're going (yes, this is not only my idea) to add some more nice features, so don't forget to come visit this page.
