Comment (by stommepoes):

 Better to Javascript them if you're going to keep them:

 I need to be able to tell if this stuff that appears on hover is something
 I need to know. Am I missing something? Is it necessary or is it just
 extra? I can't read it all to tell.

 Then, because they do appear on hover and cover stuff and my mouse
 determines where I can see: something to close them so I don't have to
 move my viewport, like the Esc key. So using Javascript would allow
 hovering over the visible title entirely AND let me close it when I choose
 while keeping my view in place.

 Example of limited view (that's my whole screen), where the title
 attribute of the Plugin link shows but if I were to move my mouse over to
 see the rest of it, I wouldn't be hovering on the link anymore, so cannot
 read it all.
