Pardon the dust!
This page includes some jargon that hasn't been added to the site's glossary yet. I'll be around to fix this later, but sorry for the inconvenience in the meantime.

Glossary Entry: Tooltip

Quick Definition

A tooltip is a small block of text that appears when you hover your mouse cursor over something on the screen. These are usually tips or more detailed information about the feature connected with the object under the cursor, but they could say just about anything.

If you're accessing this page on a computer (ie, not a tablet or smartphone), you can see this in action by hovering your mouse cursor over this link.
