Chapter 6. Navigation > Adding a Fixed Drop-down Menu

Adding a Fixed Drop-down Menu

One constant in all operating systems is the fixed menu bar. Whether it’s across the top of the entire screen (Mac) or at the top of each individual window (Windows) this provides a consistent point of interaction for the user.

Strangely, Web designers seem to all but ignore this convention of user interface design, generally adding a menu bar at the top of the page that scrolls up and off the page. Imagine if you were working in Word, reached the bottom of the page while typing, and your menu bar disappeared at the top! That is, in effect, what Web designers are doing.
