PowerTip - A jQuery Plugin That Creates Hover Tooltips

PowerTip features a very flexible design that is easy to customize, gives you a number of different ways to use the tooltips, has APIs for developers, and supports adding complex data to tooltips. It is being actively developed and maintained, and provides a very fluid user experience.

Unique Features

  • Checks for hover intent - Testing for hover intent makes it so that tooltips don’t open the moment your mouse happens to cross an element with a tooltip. Users have to hover over the element for a moment before the tooltip will open. This provides a much smoother user experience.
  • Tooltip queuing - The tooltip queue makes it a fundamental rule of the system that there will only ever be one tooltip visible on the screen. When the user moves their cursor to another element with a tooltip, the last tooltip will close gracefully before the next tooltip opens.


  • Straightforward implementation
  • Simple configuration
  • Supports static tooltips as well as tooltips that follow the mouse
  • Ability to let users mouse on to the tooltips and interact with their content
  • Mouse follow tooltips are constrained to the browser viewport
  • Easy customization
  • Works with keyboard navigation
  • Smooth fade-ins and fade-outs
  • Smart placement that (when enabled) will try to keep tooltips inside of the view port
  • Multiple instances
  • Works on any type of element
  • Supports complex content (markup with behavior & events)
  • Small footprint (only 6kb minified)
  • Actively maintained
