Localization / Usability feature - case Justdial.com

Visit http://www.justdial.com

Now Change the city in the first textbox and see how the tip below the "Enter an Area" textbox changes based on the city selected. Such small things, and not a over-hyped but little useful - local lannguage support - make a website "locally aware" than anything else

Also note that the "Select City" textbox's onClick behaviour has been altered to display an overlay with cities to select from - a much efficient replacement to the single column dropdown that most other websites use.

I would call it thinking with your head - these small details make a website user friendly. Localization and Usability will be the deciding factors in making websites useful to Indian audience.
