Case Study 4
Client: AltaVista is a major provider of internet search
facilities, using technology originally developed by
Client appraisal: "We bought [the] Powerbar for our intranet,
and it truly kicks ass. Saved us some major development
time trying to get DHTML, or other technologies to work
on our variety of operating systems."
(Bob Kolosky, AltaVista)
Product: AltaVista's requirements were, on the surface,
simple. They wanted an easily deployable, scalable drop-down menu which really worked
cross-platform. However the limitations of DHTML menus (neither scalable nor properly
compatible with different browsers) had proved frustrating. They then opted
for our iPOP Pro-X Powerbar I drop-down menu,
which proved to an instant success.
Special notes: in fact we have pioneered many more
drop-down menu technologies than this and we now produce a number of
superior menus. The current range of drop-down menu solutions can
be viewed here.
