Not having that is simply dumb." I personally hate tool tips and do not at all feel that they SHOULD exist at all. The quest for minimalism, in this case, comes at the cost of usability.

This all depends, of course, on whether or not you want to be taken seriously. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2131013 This is not even a need created in the wild, it is a need created by Mozilla in taking away the browser.newtab.url preference. It's also very strange in terms of UI conventions - it's somewhat common to see buttons whose _border_ is not shown unless hovered over (e.g. How do I get a link to open in a new tab?
