Description

Hi,

I wanted to use this 'plugin' because Chrome fails to show title attribute for disabled option elements.

But it doesn't work in option elements at all!

Confirmed. This also affects Safari http://jsfiddle.net/tj_vantoll/az2jV/. Opera doesn't display a tooltip but it also doesn't seem to support the title attribute on option elements natively.

This seems a bit crazy. If you want tooltips on options (which seems like you probably need a better UI anyway), you should probably use a custom select menu.

I want to tell the users why certain elements in the menu are disabled. Why is this crazy?

All modern browsers support the title attribute on all elements (except webkit on disabled options)

Why are you even arguing what i use it for? Are you providing a tooltip or not?

Well, disabled elements don't have events, so it's impossible for us to do anything with natively disabled elements.
