    I use Opera.

    Sometimes, when looking at the "New posts" page, I get a little text popup (in the same style as the ALT text for images) that contains the first sentence or two of the posts. But, I can't figure out what I'm supposed to roll over to get the text. From where does it come?

    I use Opera as well, and I too would like to know why. It almost seems like it randomly happens to me.

    Aha, I found it.

    Apparently, it's the title of the table cell containing the link. It appears what you need to do is to point outside of the text area -- in other words, point into the margins of the cell. Any margin works; left, right, top, or bottom.

    Hmm...in the more recent version of Safari on my laptop, I get those pop ups by hovering over the thread title, but on the older version on my office desktop, I don't get any pop ups (and no, I don't have pop up blocker on).

    I get pop-ups by hovering over the thread title in Safari, Firefox, and Netscape.
