/** * hoverIntent is similar to jQuery's built-in "hover" function except that * instead of firing the onMouseOver event immediately, hoverIntent checks * to see if the user's mouse has slowed down (beneath the sensitivity * threshold) before firing the onMouseOver event. * * hoverIntent r5 // 2007.03.27 // jQuery 1.1.2+ * * * hoverIntent is currently available for use in all personal or commercial * projects under both MIT and GPL licenses.
