      Description

      We use a standard tooltip in SonarQube and SonarCloud when we need to explain non self-explanatory UI actions, concepts or pieces of wording. These tooltips appear immediately on mouse-over.

      However there are still some parts of the interface where browser's native tooltips are used instead. Those take 3 seconds to appear, making explanations easy to miss.

      Occurs in:

      • "Deactivate" inactive button on Rules page
      • ...

      There are also cases where we use our standard tooltip instead of native tooltips for descriptive hints (icon names, full text of truncated text, ...)
