Customize status bar to show country name?
The status bar at the bottom of the GE window tells the longitude and latitude of the mouse pointer. I want it to tell me the country I'm hovering over. Is there any way to do this? This would be useful when zooming in on geopolitical borders, particularly where more than two countries touch, like Russia/China/North Korea.
Actually, I'd be happy anywhere that information could be displayed, not necessarily the status bar. That just seems like a good place for it.
I find it pretty inconvenient in GE to find out what country I'm in. Basically I have to zoom out until the whole country is visible, and labeled with its name... and them zoom all the way back in! There's got to be an easier way. :slant:
