Navigation is among the most important pieces of every single website. No content would be reachable without properly designed navigation that answers the questions “where am I?” and “where can I go from here?”. We got used to either a top, left or right menu. They’re patterns used since the beginning of the web.

Something changed in 2013 though. Designers started to play with the concept and come up with really creative solutions. Some of them are more usable (bottom navigation), some less (usage of a keyboard in navigating through a website), but all in all this is an interesting and popular trend that’s changing the way the Internet looks.

It certainly catches an eye and in some cases improve the engagement of users while browsing the web.
