Interesting Google UI Element

Today we were experimenting with the new Google Insights for Search tool and thought that the category filtering tool was interesting.

At first glance it appears to be a drop down menu but it’s actually Javascript. Very well done (although definitely some areas for improvement) and an interesting way to help people filter content.

  1. New to this blog, though just bookmarked it!

    I am pretty technologically proficient, seeing as how I design and build websites, and it took me a couple tries on this one. Just making the arrow the only thing that activates the drop down I think is the only fault I see. I tried clicking on the words and nothing happened, then I realized I needed to click on the arrow.

    Excellent end product, but little details are what makes an idea strong.
