30 Creative Javascript Navigation Menu Examples

title-navigationSuccessful, eye-catching and mainly user-friendly site navigation sometimes is key to whole web design, because users usually search for navigation at first, when they visit website. Also don’t shy to experiment – portfolio websites can stand out just by that, creating something beautiful and unusual. In our days there are times when whole websites slide over your eyes, possibilities are pretty limitless.

    Javascript navigation does look fantastic, especially the subtle way wordpress goes about it but I’m not sure how this works well with SEO.
