    Could you add the "alt" text to the img "title" attribute as well. Firefox and Chrome don't display the alt text, they display the text in the title attribute.

    I would need this as well but, not on the image. The title attribute usually goes on the link tag (a href=). This would be awesome!

    ZeroGravity: to show Alt attribute as title add this title="'.$alt.'" on line 15 of your widget.php, after href="'.$link.'"

    This also applies for the title if it is defined as a link, pixelyzed can search support how to add the link to the title.

    This is a great idea. We're going to sneak this in the impending WP 3.5+ support update. We're also adding a filter called 'image_widget_link_attributes' that will work in much the same way that 'wp_get_attachment_image_attributes' works so that you can easily insert your own link attributes.

    great!, this will be easier for those who do not know the code.

    This will be great. I had thought about updating widget.php but didn't want another plugin where I needed to keep track of customizations I had made. It becomes a bit of pain in the neck when update time rolls around.

    I understand about having the title attribute on the link. Something I have noticed with Chrome and Firefox is if you have an image without a link around it they don't display the alt attribute of the image. If you add a title attribute to the image as well up pops the text.

    I have a dream. That one day all browsers will behave the same. Ok, back to reality. ;)
