2010 Web Design Trend: Modal Boxes

Monday, March 15th, 2010

A modal box is a secondary window that pops up and floats over the top of a web page, requiring a visitor to interact with it before they can return to the main window. It works similarly to a pop up box, but is way better, because they are seamlessly integrated into the layout of a web site and there is no need to load a new page. These boxes are more stylish, user-friendly, and allow the viewer to focus on pertinent information. You’ll commonly see these used to display images in detail, on sign-in forms, for alerts or notifications, to display help tips, search boxes and video. Check out examples of modal boxes below:
