A hoverbox is a popup window that is neither a tooltip nor a traditional popup, but is a popup that appears when the mouse is placed over an icon on the screen for a short period of time, without clicking.
Hoverboxes differ from tooltips in that hoverboxes support HTML elements and can be used to display forms, graphics and lists among other html elements.
Typically used to hide page elements that would otherwise clutter a website.
