Fisheye Menus

Saturday, October 21st, 2006

A interesting applet with a interesting new solution for searching in absurdly long menus.

The Fisheye Menu is designed to be self-explanatory. All of the items are visible, and can be accessed by moving the mouse. No mouse clicks are necessary for navigation! Because there are so many items, a small mouse motion will move to the next item, so a focus lock mode has been implemented which lets you select items near the focus more easily. Move the mouse on the right side of the fisheye menu to enter focus lock mode, or on the left side for regular fisheye mode.
