Many web applications or web sites offer the feature that when the user moves the mouse over a link, then additional information concerning the link is shown in a popup or overlay. A critical point in this feature is the length of the delay between mouse over event and displaying the popup. If it is to small, then it is likely that the popup with the additional info is displayed when the user just moved the mouse unintentionally over the link, which can be annoying. If it is to long, the user has to wait for the info which undermines the idea behind this construction. Are there any studies that show what the optimal length of such a delay is?
