The tooltips can be quite annoying, at least in Chrome. When, for
example, http://subversion.apache.org/faq.html is viewed in Chrome
(not the section with lots of hyperlinks, but the actual answers to
the questions), tooltips come up very shortly after the mouse stops
moving over the text. If the mouse is moved around over the text, more
tooltips from other sections pop up, this time without any delay, and
it can get quite distracting while trying to actually read the page.
If the mouse is moved away from the content area into the left
navigation bar or into the browser toolbar, the tooltips do go away,
thankfully. Also, Firefox seems to have a much longer delay on tooltip
appearance.
