    Great examples here, love them all.

    People are really starting to embrace custom menus as they are drifting away from using drop-down menus.

    Nice ressource… I also think the visitors want more userenhanced experience when the visit webpages today.

    I’ve also made som interesting animated buttons on this site: http://www.lineofbeauty.dk.
    It’s in danish, but I think you can guess the site-contens by hovering over the button-links…

    I would have to say the inspiring layout of the sites give a boost the navigation. I tend to like the navigation most when I like the entire design.

    I would agree with Aaron. These navigations are not impressive when removed from the sites that contain them. The overall sites are nice. The navigation is just…there. Nothing too special about them except that they help you get from point A to B, which is what navigation is supposed to do.
    I’ve seen a lot of sites copying Apple’s navigation and I honestly do not know why. It is completely separate from the rest of the design and does not fit the design at all. It is also very poor at getting you to what you are looking for. Their old navigation was far superior, with a secondary navbar to guide you to the exact page you want to go. Just try to find QuickTime Movie Trailers on there new site.
