Has anyone done any work studying the effectiveness of toolbars /
"butcons" in web applications? Specifically I'm interested to know
how intermediate / advanced tools such as those impact customer
Most web 2.0 apps seem to be a mixture of tabs / buttons, with very
little use of toolbars or menus.
I am looking for pointers on how to design desktop menus for a typical
desktop application. My problem is that in our application we have around
menu items and its getting difficult to accomodate all without compromising
on either extending it horizontally (by having more top level menu heads or
by cascading under sub menus) or vertically. I read though Jeniffer
patterns book and also the chapter on menus iin About Face 3.0 but didnt
get too much help.
