Touch devices don't have mouseover events

It might sound trivial, but there is no such thing as a "hover" or "mouseover" state on touch devices. If your application is supposed to work on iPads, smartphones, etc., don't hide information behind a tooltip, and don't make controls appear when hovering over another element.

Generally, things that happen/appear when you hover an element should do the same when you click the element.

By refactoring problematic code and creating automated tests, makandra can vastly improve the maintainability of your Rails application.
