Inverted Shift Down Menu II
This inverted horizontal menu creates tabs where the active tab is both longer and its text offset downwards compared to its less active counterparts. It does this by manipulating the tab's top/bottom padding values plus the color of its bottom border.
Inverted Shift Down Menu
This clean CSS horizontal menu contains tabs with text that shift downwards slightly when the mouse rolls over it. And just for demonstration, it shows how to make the bottom corners of each tab rounded using CSS3 and Mozilla's proprietary declarations for rounded corners.
Modern Bricks Menu
This is a modern looking, imageless horizontal menu. The selected menu item merges with the band below it to help it stand out even more. As mentioned, the menu uses no images, making customization a breeze.
Glowing Tabs Menu
Glowing Tabs Menu uses a background image that accentuates the outline of each tab. And to jazz it up, the selected tab "glows", by using the "Sliding Doors" technique to shift the original background image upwards to reveal the glowing version of the tab image. An exquisite yet professional looking horizontal menu!
Sliding Doors Vertical Menu
This nicely padded vertical menu swaps between two background images depending on whether the mouse is over or out of a menu item. To ensure a perfectly smooth transition between image change (especially in IE), it uses the Sliding Doors technique and a single background image that merges the two backgrounds into it.
Solid Block Menu
This is a lean, professional looking CSS menu that's draped in a solid two color background image. The divider between the menu items is simply a white CSS border. The style is extremely easy to customize thanks to the simple background image used.
