I'm looking for a way to disable the mouseover tooltips for images and hyperlinks in Internet Explorer. I've dug through the settings of IE 8 with no luck. My research suggests that only Opera has ever had this option.
I checked my copy of IE3 and it doesn't have tooltips for links, though it does for images. It too has no setting to get rid of the tooltips, so it seems like this has never been an option in IE.
I understand that this is a feature of HTML and that it's up to the web page designer to determine if the page has these tooltips. I just want to get rid of all of them that I come across. There are good reasons to disable these. For example, this is an issue for some people with epileptic seizures.
How can I remove tooltips for all pages while using Internet Explorer?
