Does anyone have any links to tutorials? Google hasn't been my friend today.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, but I don't think that will give me the cool bouncing effect of the little tabs as they retract back in.

Sometimes there are better friends than Google and this time the friend is common sense (and the web developer toolbar): View the source code, find the elements that mark up the navigation in question. The navigation items have a class called “headlink”. A quick search (Ctrl+F/Cmd+F) for “headlink” in the JavaScript files reveals that the function is written/executed in http://dojocampus.org/explorer/featureexplorer/featureexplorer.js Obviously this is a JavaScript framework (as I have suspected already – alough I didn’t know that one yet) and a quick search for “addonload” (since that function name was unfamiliar to me) brought me to http://dojotoolkit.org/ where you have everything you need to create that very effect.

On a side note: the Dojo toolkit isn’t the only one that can do this. Mootools et al have similar functions (easeIn, easeOut etc.).
