I'm having a hard time thinking of use cases where the resizable components would improve usability / add funtionality to web apps. The samples on the blog do illustrate that the resizable components are "neat", but how are people using this to improve thier web apps?
The resizable text area in this forum for posting really doesnt improve the usability. What was the motivation behind creating these components? Can you list some use cases where they would be really useful?

I think this textbox is prime example. I frequently create long responses and for me the resize is manditory.
Beyond that, other uses could be to resize a dialog (like BasicDialog uses it) or you could use it to create time periods like google calendar (user and drag and resize time blocks), or suppose you want to give users to specify their preferred avatar size by scaling their avatar with the resizer instead of inputing pixel values, or ....
There are uses, you just have to think outside the box.

it would give me much more usability, but maybe its a bit freaky...
