Ribbons are used these days to hold options for users; let's create a ribbon for our application.
The term ribbon is widely used to describe an area of an application or operating system that contains widgets, links, or other information. Look around your operating system for a ribbon to generate ideas on what you might add to a ribbon on your web application.
Not all ribbons have animation, but most do. Ours will slide in and out based on the mouse cursor entering and leaving the defined ribbon area.
