I'm trying to figure out what all is happening in the LinkedIN links URL. A link from LinkedIN community opens with a window shade (?) containing the LinkedIN site tools much like the alerts here at SE. The target link is embedded in a LinkedIN url as a GET variable.
This is a LinkedIN link in three parts (the middle part is the target URL),
- What is this GUI widget I called "window shade" commonly referred to as?
- What is the technical code reference?
- What is the term I can use to describe the way LinkedIN uses GET data?
