Is there a Google Chrome Extension that I could use on Google Search so that when I hover over links like these in Google Search or hover my mouse over it, it displays the webpage URL in some type of hover box where I can copy it?

When I right click on the link(s) and click copy, it gives me a URL like this

https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CB8Q6QUoATAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.hobsonscoursefinder.com.au%2FLatest-news%2FGetting-into-university&ei=JSPNU4_SD8rr8AWXvIBI&usg=AFQjCNGwMHq3MV5ztscUCC1x9OPThiGrqg&sig2=zq_qzHzAEqiAFZ8R_jtmYg&bvm=bv.71198958,d.dGc

Any ideas/suggestions? I just want to see the actual website URL and be able to hover over these URL's and see them in some type of hover box so I can copy it.

I like Undirect for that. It doesn't do exactly what you want but I personally think it is better.

It removes the redirect link and replaces it with the direct link. This has the benefit of preventing Google from doing as much tracking and also right-click->copy link address actually copies the link address instead of that ugly ugly redirect address.
