Other functionality

Shows the author color on hover Supports fast switching between hovers (Doesn't depend on native browser support)

Why did I rewrite this?

I don't really like plugins that depdend on manipulating the ACE inner DOM, rewriting this plugin and using events meant I could still have hover functionality without the risk of running into nasty ACE issues down the line. It also meant that as new authors joined and updated their name I could update hte hovers in real time. Previous attempts at writing this plugin have required a browser refresh to know who authors are, that wasn't good enough for me.
