Change 227748 had a related patch set uploaded (by Florianschmidtwelzow):
Move quickLookup to beta and rename to Hovercards

@bmansurov Can you attach a screenshot?

@bmansurov can we play with this somewhere before promoting to beta? Also, I think event logging akin to what they have done in apps (check with @Dbrant) is a crucial blocker to successful promotion to stable.

@KHammerstein: (Obama's page)

@JKatzWMF: Yes, you can test it on your phone by going to and swiping over a link.

@KHammerstein & @bmansurov The change above ( fixes the white "X" (close) button to, that should be black :)

Note swiping doesn't seem to work on ios for me or desktop browsers so you'll need an Android device...

Yes, I forgot to apply your patch, @Florian.

This is a technical task.

I've created the Hovercards epic (T111329) to track reasoning around and design/eventual resurrection of the hovercards feature.

Thanks phuedx !
