Navigation is one of the most important aspects of a successful website. Content may be king, but unless people can navigate the passages of the castle, his royal highness may never reach the masses.

I’ve chosen three examples of navigation to show you. Each one has various qualities worth noting.

Because these navigation bars are best viewed full screen, they will open in a new window of appropriate size. When you are finished viewing each one, just close the window (or click the button at the bottom of the page) to return here.
