No. Of course, you can ctrl-u and search for the tooltip in the html source or you can make a screen shot, but I guess that's not what you're after.

I've seen this trick working with tooltips on some websites - select tooltip & its surrounding words, copy selected text while the tooltip text is visible & then paste at the desired location. You'll need to remove the extra words you copied initially. enter image description here
