This paper introduces bubbling menus, a new design for pull-down cascading menus. Bubbling menus combine the bubble cursor  with directional mouse-gesture tech-niques to facilitate the access of certain items in a menu, such as frequently selected items. Through an extensive iterative design process, we explore bubbling menus in the context of adaptive and customizable user interfaces. Un-like other adaptation and customization techniques such as split menus, bubbling menus do not disrupt the original structure of menus and enable the activation of menus far from a menu bar. Results from two evaluation studies pre-sented in the paper show that bubbling menus provide an effective alternative to accelerate menu selections tasks
