I'm trying to build a site that showcases products, similar in style/layout to many CSS galleries, and from what I've seen, many of those types of sites use WordPress. Going that route seems pretty straightforward, but I don't think WordPress is able to (at least without a custom plug-in) do something I have planned.

What I'm looking to do is allow users to filter products by a number of criteria without doing an advanced search. For example, a user could select a category, color, or price, then have the posts/products sorted either upon a page reload or via javascript.

I found one site that has a close approximation of my goal - foliostars.net. Sorry, I can't post links yet. (It's the horizontal navigation bar above the image thumbnails.)

Does anybody know if something like this can be implemented in WordPress, or do I have to go with another CMS?
