Are you sure you're asking the right question? I'd say it's hard to find a site that doesn't use hover to trigger dropdowns...

Can we improve dropdowns?

Obviously it's documented that dropdowns (select boxes) are difficult to use because they hide the selections from the user and unless the information that will be exposed is extremely intuitive, they will not click on the control to expand it. I'm wondering if anyone has employed a hover technique to a dropdown to show the hidden selections?
