Navigation bars convention

June 5, 2008

“Almost all web sites have gone to navigation on the top and/or on the left side of the screen. In user testing, Razorfish discovered that not only did the users not mind the change, but it provided easier access to the scrollbar for faster navigation and made it easier to concentrate on the content.”
