I've seen a lot of talk on this issue regarding Mozilla, Netscape, and many variants on IE, but nothing mentioned about the Opera browser.
Opera version 7.23 (build 3227) seems to always display the full link in both hovertext and the status bar. As well, when clicked, a pop-up window appears saying:
You are about to go to an address containing a username.
Username: www.microsoft.com[a box appears here]
Are you sure you want to go to this address?
If the user answers OK, the message will not appear should the same link be clicked on again.
