Glossary : Faceted search

Faceted (or navigational) search uses a hierarchy structure (taxonomy) to enable users to browse information by choosing from a pre-determined set of categories. This allows a user to type in their simple query, then refine their search options by navigating / drilling down.

Facets correspond to properties of the information elements, allowing users to explore a collection of information by applying multiple filters.

has given way to the long shadow trend with its sticker goodies… :
