One of our favorite things about CSS3 is the addition of RGBA, a color mode that adds alpha-blending to your favorite CSS properties.

ZURB has kicked the tires on it a bit with our own projects and have found that it helps streamline our CSS and makes scaling things like buttons very easy.

To show you how, ZURB has cooked up an example with some super awesome, scalable buttons.

Although many will argue that Microsoft products are an example of a good design, Minibar was one of design refreshments that came out with the Office 2007. It is a variation of a toolbar that exposes context-related functionality. In case of MS Word, context is a text selection. Since Minibar always pops up near the mouse pointer it enables users to quickly perform actions related to a selection.

So how it works? When user makes a selection in input field Minibar pops up, semi-transparent, above the selection. When user hovers the Minibar it fades out. It disappears when user clicks anywhere in the input field or performs an action by clicking on a Minibar button.

Creating Microsoft Office Minibar with jQuery and CSS3 will be shown in this tutorial which was written by Janko - it has only bold, underline, italic, and link buttons.

AeroWindow  is a jQuery plugin for creating Windows 7-like aero style pop-ups.

The pop-ups not only look like a native Windows element but also behave similarly as well with the minimize, zoom, maximize and close functions.

There can be multiple pop-ups in one page where the active one is highlighted visually.

All can be resized, drag'n dropped or maximized with double-clicks, all like Windows.

AeroWindow has various options like defining:

    - window titles
    - start positions (x-y or centered)
    - standard and minimum sizes
    - getting the status of an open window
    - applying animations on windows


The plugin is pretty awesome specially for anyone who wants to build an OS-like web interface.

Requirements: jQuery
Compatibility: All Major Browsers
