Sometimes, user interfaces can be really constraining. A whole lot of stuff to do, and not nearly enough pixels to do it in. In regular desktop applications, in is extremely common to put useful and repetitive items in a context menu, to keep them from cluttering up the screen. However, it is generally frowned upon to put context menus on a web page - because then they will interfere with the browser's normal context menu. But, as always, there are special cases - for instance, Google Maps has its own context menu, and it seems to work pretty well.
So today, we are going to talk about context menus in web pages. But not any old context menus - we are going to talk about radial menus, or more specifically, how to make your own radial menus. What are radial menus, you ask? Also known as pie menus, they are essentially a circular popup/context menu. They are not particularly common in standard windows apps (because they are not in any of the standard widget libraries), but they do often make appearances in video games.
