Amazing animated search bar using HTML & CSS

Hey guys, Today in this post, we’ll learn How to add an amazing animated search bar with icon using CSS and HTML. To create it we are going to use simple CSS & Font Awesome. Hope you enjoy this post.

A search bar is a very important component of our website. They allow users to easily search for articles available on your blog and help them find out what they are looking for easily, which increases the friendliness of the website to users.

Extending the search box to Hover is an idea that modern websites use nowadays, with placing it in the top navbar of the website to see it easily.
