CSS Library Horizontal CSS Menus
Welcome to Dynamic Drive's new CSS library! Here you'll find original, practical CSS codes and examples such as CSS menus to give your site a visual boast.
Chrome Menu Bar
This is a lightweight "chrome" looking CSS menu bar. The menu uses two variants of the same background image to create the hover effect, and each menu items can easily be set to either align "left", "center", or "right" on the page, just by changing the "text-align" attribute.
Clean Arrow Underline Menu
This menu uses the nifty "CSS Triangles technique" to create a clean horizontal UL menu with a thick arrow border applied to the currently active menu item. It uses no images nor any extranous markup to accomplish the effect,
Corp Blue CSS Menu
This corporate blue themed menu uses the sliding door technique to create 2 states. While it works perfectly fine against a white background, for black background pages, the tabs reveal a thick white outline around its edges.
CSS Animated Underline Menu
This menu takes the simplicity and elegance of an underline beneath text and animates it for a touch of liveliness. Three effects are presented- drawing the line horizontally, drawing and thickening the line, and finally, drawing and expanding the line to cover the entire menu item.
CSS Circle Menu
This CSS example uses CSS3's
border-radius property that's set to a very large value to create circle menu links.
CSS Clay Bricks Menu
This rustic looking horizontal CSS menu utilizes CSS3 gradient backgrounds and box shadows to add progressive visual appeal while still maintaining its minimalist look. The menu uses no CSS floats and hence can be easily left, center, or right aligned.
CSS Indent Menu
Using two gradient background images, this horizontal CSS menu makes the active/ selected menu item appear indented. The width of the menu is set to 80% of its container in the demo .The entire menu markup plus images combined comes in at a very lean 2.5kb.
