Top 20 CSS Navigation Menus πŸš€

A good user flow contributes enormously to a successful website. The content, positioning and appearance should therefore be well thought out. Here you will find some inspirations for your own navigation menu!

After the Top 20 CSS Buttons were very well received by you and I got a lot of positive feedback, here is the continuation: Top 20 CSS Navigation Menus!

Sometimes there are "normal" menus in this list, for a very simple reason: Usability comes first and then appearance. Even "normal" menu bars can look very chic. With the right effects and animations they also become a real eye-catcher.

The same applies to mobile representations, also called "hamburgers". Both desktop and mobile menus are available.

All navigation menus are published on codepen.io and are not mine. Therefore the author is always linked. Let's go!

I don't know any more. Maybe a search for "svg menu" or something like this can help you. Or better: make a request on dev.to or/and twitter 😊

That hamburger one is GREAT but the real gem here is the accessibility menu. Definitively saving for future reference.

Right! It has a much better usability. How I said there are some awesome fancy menus but also useful menus. 😊

I really like #10, but it's a bit off losing the scroll bar. I might also try matching the menu/close icon and paired text animations match a little better.
