Google Calendar's in-place-editor

Google_in_place_editor.png I noticed a nice little twist on the in-place-editor in the new Google Calendar, namely that it adds a small 3D-style border to the hover effect, which makes it look more like an input field. See the image on the right: The first is how the data looks, the second is on mouse-over, and the third is after the field is clicked. Very nice touch.

I’m not convinced it adds enough value to justify the additional weight over the normal Javascript confirm(), but it does look nicer.
