Unique Web Interfaces

About a year ago, I came across the WebFX Dynamic Webboard, which caught my attention for its unique web-based UI design. In addition to being quite cool...
- It does a great job of emulating unique GUI components, such as the scrollable folder list at left, the toolbar at the very top, and the hierarchical listview at top.
- It is very detailed in its interaction. Mouseovers on list items show a hover effect that is pleasing and useful.
- The toolbar at top particularly caught my eye. The developers managed to make the toolbar match Internet Explorer's toolbar design and appearance almost perfectly, which easily fools the user into thinking that the browser itself has changed. It has not; this is part of the HTML webpage. To convince yourself, right-click on it, and you will see IE's pop-up browser content menu.
