I suggest you...

hovering over wiki links brings up infoboxes with no time in. That's bit frustrating and distracting.

        when we're reading an article on the desktop, the mouse pointer usually hovers somewhere on the article. then, if we scroll (to read more), which we almost always do, the mouse pointer may happen to hover over a link as text scrolls up. [i hope this is making sense!] when this happens, the hover-info-popup-thing (this: https://imgur.com/D4RqURK) pops up instantly, and is extremely distracting. i really like wikiwand, but this is an absolute buzz-kill. i'd like to be able to configure the pop-ups: whether or not i want them at all; if i do, then how much of a hover-time triggers them (i'd suggest ~300–600 millisecond); etc. if you remember, wordpress tried hovercards for a while too, but they were immensely unpopular: not because people didn't want them, but because they popped up when least expected. you could run an A/B test and see how many people actually click on the hovercards—i bet the numbers will be *really* low—and then decide how to make them less of a nuisance. besides that, i really like wikiwand! thanks :)
