But after browsing the web for a while, it turned out that the hamburger icon comes from the Xerox Star personal worksection. It’s one of the earliest graphical user interfaces.

These days hamburger icon is used to save space on the screen and denotes a hidden menu.

When clicked on it, the user would be allowed to navigate the website menu. I collected 20 website examples using a hamburger icon design which means hidden menu. Scroll down and enjoy!
