Simple, small, flat, cool

Tipr displays attractive tooltips, and it's around 2KB, CSS included. The tooltips can appear above or below almost any HTML element. It also reacts to the size of the viewport.

Tipr is open source and released under the MIT License, and is compatible with all modern browsers.
