Popovers provide additional content and access to actionable elements within a popup.

Popover Overview

The popover component is a UI element that displays additional content or options when the anchor element is hovered, clicked, or focused. It represents a popup that provides contextually relevant information, menus, or controls without navigating to a new page or interrupting the user's current workflow. Popovers are often used to enhance user interaction and provide quick access to additional details or actions within an application or website.
