Description: Want to learn how to create great user experiences on today’s Web? In this book, UI experts Bill Scott and Theresa Neil present more than 75 design patterns for building web interfaces that provide rich interaction.

With an entire section devoted to each design principle, Designing Web Interfaces helps you:

* Keep It Lightweight-Reduce the effort required to interact with a site by using In Context Tools to leave a “light footprint”
* Stay on the Page-Keep visitors on a page with overlays, inlays, dynamic content, and in-page flow patterns
* Provide an Invitation-Help visitors discover site features with invitations that cue them to the next level of interaction
* Use Transitions-Learn when, why, and how to use animations, cinematic effects, and other transitions
* React Immediately-Provide a rich experience by using lively responses such as Live Search, Live Suggest, Live Previews, and more
