50 Beautiful And User-Friendly Navigation Menus by Smashing Magazine

Navigation menus are one of the most crucial component on your site – without good design and placement or the total lack thereof, new visitors will find it a challenge to figure out a way to browse through your content. Your site can have a load of goodies, freebies and etc to offer, but without proper linking and prompting, visitors will leave soon after they get frustrated with their inability to freely navigate around the site. I wouldn’t say mine is the best – it still has a lot of room for improvement. At least it’s a better version of the original menu that I designed alongside with the current theme.

Matt Cronin shared a compiled list of 50 beautiful and user-friendly navigation menus on Smashing Magazine recently. This is one of the best compilations of menus I’ve ever seen – it covers w ide range of themes, from water coloured to hand-drawn art, from sleek Web 2.0 to retro-looking ones. It is interesting to see how designers out there design their navigation menus, and many of the sites listed on that page have more than just awesome navigation menus for you to drool over. They have interesting and inpsiring designs that are waiting to be discovered :) that’s killing two birds (or more!) with one stone.

Hello Easter Egg hunter! You've discovered the magic of the Konami Code!

Yea. You probably know what the Konami code is before getting to this page. So now what? Here is a randomised YouTube video on my favourites list... which includes Rickroll, if you're luck enough to get it.

You are currently watching Hilarious beer commercial. Loving it? You can even watch the video in its full screen glory :)
