Quince Interaction Design Patterns

Quince is an interesting library of Interaction Design patterns that helps developers lookup, learn and effectively create more user-friendly user experiences. The main draw is that each design pattern is accompanied by a list of references to books or articles that mention the pattern. The down side is that the references seem to be popular books written by famous usability experts who don’t site specific studies or experiments supporting their findings. Of course, those experts are famous for a reason, so we wouldn’t want to completely disregard the references. Nonetheless listing a peer-reviewed study or two wouldn’t hurt Quince’s cause. Oh, and it’s written in a really flashy Silverlight user interface (pun intended).

Talking about references, I found Quince on Ajaxian.com, an excellent resource for web development goodies.
