Does anyone have any examples of web apps that use "HUDs" or "Heads-Up
Displays" to give the user feedback?
I'm talking a really light HUD here - basically a little rectangle that
comes up in the middle of the screen after the user completes an action,
says something like "Your widget has been deleted", and then fades away
after a couple of seconds.
The idea is to create feedback in the user's locus of attention rather
than somewhere else on the page where they might not be looking.
