I believe the navigation of a website should always be simple. However, if a website has many pages and sub pages, the thought of navigation simplicity goes out the window. This is where drop down menus come into play. A good and well executed drop down menu can make navigating a large site easy for the user. While drop downs make site navigation easy, sometimes they can seem difficult to implement, but the solutions listed below are all a breeze to set up, especially since most of them are built on jQuery or MooTools.

The Mega Drop-Down Menu with jQuery looks great due to the clean code it produces. Nice list of drop down menus, am i right in assuming that some of these are free and some you have to pay for?
Not a big fan of drop downs but people still want them. Still some nice menus there, thanks
These could be very useful for an Ecom site to quickly filter down to a product or sub Cat level.
Other than one of those jquery examples these are some of the ugliest 1990s looking drop down menus.
I really like superfish, I think I’m going to start using it in my sites.
oh suckerfish, still one of the easiest and best
Superfish is the only way to go! I love it and it rarely does me wrong! The transitions are beautiful in standards-compliant browsers.
@anthony, that’s the beauty of CSS, the massive customization possibilities! Don’t be reined in by the demo code
This is so cool. I’m so glad I found this. Thanks for the info!
The examples on the website are not the best looking ones, but check out the live-website examples for what it can really do.
This is a useful compilation. Thanks! 🙂
Pretty good list of drop downs! Would probably use basic css style navigations! But could be tempted to use jquery or mootools for multiple-column layouts!
