Installation directions

  1. Click the direct link: [en.wikipedia.org]
  2. Go to Tools>Install This User Script…

What? Why? Where?

This script was written because it bugged me that the only way to tell what the heck [[WP:|WP:*]] links actually linked to was to click them. Now I can hover my mouse for a second or so and the *real* link target will pop up. It works on any redirect that matches /^[A-Z][A-Za-z]{0,2}:/.

As far as I know, this should work automagically on all mediawikis that have the Query API, but I've only tested on "en.wikipedia.org". The regex for filtering titles would probably have to change. For more information about the Query API, check out [en.wikipedia.org] and [meta.wikimedia.org]

Hakuna matata.
