two tooltip examples, short and long url
Download a video from youtube and then hover over it in dolphin and the tooltip takes a lot of screen space.
In attachment are two examples, one showing a normal tooltip with short url and the other with long url.
This was made visible by implementing the feature requested in Bug 386261. We should find some way to clip ugly URLs or only display a substring or something.

Maybe something like ...
What about showing only the domain address and than as many parts of the subdirs as possible and cutting the rest to something like this ?
Limiting the whole URL to an absolute maximum. Just a quick shot, I have added a really trivial example.
I've created a patch for this issue here:
