More details

Although this add-on isn't Data Center certified, it will work in Data Center environments.

This plugin does just one thing, when you hover on an issue link, whether it is only an issue key or an issue summary, it shows you full issue description with all formatting like tables, links, source code etc.

Within a work day, you browse from issue to issue by opening them in new tabs. After some time you can't even see the tab names, because there are so many tabs. This plugin will help you to reduce the number of tabs you need to open. Whenever you just want to see more information about an issue, just hover on issue key instead of opening it in a new tab, and its description will be displayed as an overlay.
