There are no frames, so no. The browserBeforeNavigate only gets sent 
when the URL changes, and the links in the page do not always change 
URLs, (they are basically reference IDs, mainly footnotes) so that's why.

If the footnote is contained in the existing browser content then the 
link navigates but I can't find out about it until after the navigation 
completes. If the link points to another set of content that isn't 
loaded yet, nothing happens and I still don't find out about it until 
browserNavigateComplete is sent. I want to know what link was clicked so 
I can handle it regardless of the intended link destination. I don't see 
any way to do that.
