Your favorite "tour" on a website?

Good Morning,

We're working on a project that has a somewhat complex concept to get across
without using a lot of information. Based on testing we're finding out that
some kind of tour is the way to go to introduce our product to our

We've been looking at Mint.com as a real good example of a tour. I think
Campaign Monitor has a good one too. Do you know of any other sites that use
the "tour" really well? We'd like to look at as many good examples as
possible. Suggestions are appreciated!

Design Samples for Client Workshop


This is going to come off rather broad but I am throwing it out there
anyways. I am going into a client workshop series this coming week and
I have prepared a list of core areas for improvement based on both
their current product as well as research documentation provided by
the client. Without too many details, I am presenting the 5 keys to
success as:

1. Search and Retrieval (2000+ products)
2. Layout and Navigation (IA)
3. Ecommerce (|From a design perspective)
4. Content Delivery (Making it related / relevant etc.)

Stuffing focus to textbox controls

This may relate to the recent auto-tabbing thread...

For using a proxy server to establish an internet connection, we have one checkbox for enabling the proxy, which makes active a textbox for the server and port plus another checkbox for authorization. Turning on the second checkbox enables username/password fields.

What should happen with the input focus when the checkboxes are turned on? Should it stay where the user last clicked, or should it move to the newly enabled textbox, or go somewhere else.
