This slick HTML5 webapp allows users to easily sort through the news as it happens. News stories pop open when hovered giving you a glimpse of what’s new.
I’d deeply love to see something like this for Google live search results. I feel like this is what they were going for with Google Wave, but this concept and execution just knocks it clean out of the water.
I’m envisaging other ways an interface like this could be employed… not just search results – what about movie trailers, images, torrents, music, anything – even web development articles 8-o!
It appears to be using local storage to save your options, but I haven’t dug into the code so I suppose it could be cookies. In any case… I just love it. Congrats AP labs.
