The "traditional GIS" way of doing it is to have a (modal) inspection 
tool. That is:
a) you click a little icon to select that mode
b) the pointer turns into an arrow-plus-question mark
c) "query mode" is now engaged and does what we're discussing here

You'll see this on lots of ArcWhatever-powered local council websites. 
Again, not particularly endorsing it, just thought it might be helpful 
to have the perspective.
