1. Highly pleasing or agreeable to the end user, especially the functionality and performance.
2. Very pleasant; delightful: a googlicious web interface.
The knowledge management system I am working on is tightly entwined with Verity’s Ultraseek search engine technology. One of the recurring requests we used to get about search functionality (both the search form and the results) was simple: make it more like Google.
It seems like almost everyone loves Google. And why not? It’s got a simple, no-nonsense interface that puts little in the way between me and my task: to find something. It’s fast. And the results are very accurate. Things should be more like Google. Simple. Purposeful. Incredibly useful… maybe even Indispensable.
So that’s my goal. Create interfaces that are a pleasure to use.
