re: why it’s named Toast – Android has a very similar feature (“pop up a message for a short amount of time”) which they call Toast, so I assume the Bootstrap guys named their Toast after Android’s. Why Android chose to call it Toast is an interesting story. Apparently (at least according to https://stackoverflow.com/a/5134514/947870 ) it was named by a Google employee who used to work at Microsoft. MSN Messenger (Microsoft’s instant messenger client) had a very similar notification feature where small notification windows would slide up into view , stick around for a few seconds, then slide back down. The employee thought these windows looked like toast popping out of a toaster. And the rest is history.
