Well, it is not quite so. Modern browsers (except, of course, IE :rolleyes: ) do not accept anymore the hiding/changing of the status bar. Nor should they accept. The reason is simple: the user should always know where a link goes, so that the malicious redirection (phishing) possibility should be diminish this way. So that the trick:
<a href="www.google.com" onmouseover="window.status='';return true">google</a>
will work in IE only.
nidhikayadav, you should try a server-side solution. Link to a server-side aplication (say php or asp...) which will simply redirect the navigation. And even so, some browsers might alert the user that he is to be carried to another domain. Why do you want to hide that address?
