From the API document for OpenLayers, I can tell that a FramedCloud has more functionalities than Framed, which in turn has more functionalities than Anchored. I am hoping for someone to describe these differences in a way which a lay person like me can understand.

    To see the OpenLayers Popup Matrix go to the Open Layers Example Page and search for "Popup Matrix". – randlet Aug 2 '15 at 16:05

As @randlet and @Aragon mentioned, You might want to have a look at the following example: Popup Matrix

That only compares Anchored and FramedCloud variants. Visually one can see that the FramedCloud class Popup looks like a speech bubble with a arrow pointing to the anchor. Anchored class Popup is just a rectangle.

  • @Aaron: updated link; I know I should copy the information from there to here for permanency, but I do not know a good way to do that, since the information is presented as a Javascript page. – Rauni Apr 3 '18 at 11:35
