Pretty cool UI. I'm not sure about it being the future of web-based navigation though. This idea and the software to support it has been around for a pretty long time now, and apart from a few nifty websites it doesn't seem to have taken off all that much.
Not to mention hovering-based navigation doesn't work on touchscreens, which are pretty popular at the moment.
LOL - I knew some of you would just barf on it. It's definitely not what people are used to. This page is actually a survey that the authors are running to see whether they think people would use such an interface. I wonder if they plan to release the results.
Good point about the touchscreens, Alex, but the applications that I think this could be most useful for would probably not be very practical to use from a touchscreen anyway.
you'll find you get used to the additional clicks fairly quickly, without the perspective of less clicks concrete5 v 5.5.1 is still pretty awesome, the UI looks way better than 5.4.x, to the point where I'm actually enjoying writing add ons for concrete5 again.
So don't get too down on it :). There are a few more clicks than there should be, and that subnav is something i'd like to see make a return..(or at least override the drop down in the dashboard header by default if nothing else is defined) but overall i think concrete5 looks really nice
I agree. I never intended for this to discredit the new dashboard in 5.5. If you look through some of my other recent posts, you'd see that I have been supportive of it. My first reaction was not pleasant, but after seeing how much faster I could get things done, I don't think I'll want to go back.
I shared this link with the C5 community because it seems to take that whole "less clicking" concept to a whole new level, and since we've been debating endlessly on that concept, I thought it would be of interest here, albeit a bit controversial. I intended it only as a friendly debate. :-)
