Web Designer’s Resources: Free Navigation Code

Ever notice how things that look easy to the user are, in fact, really complicated for the web designer or developer to pull off? Like horizontal navigation bars that fully span the active space on a web page. Sebastian Nitu, a web designer and developer based in Vancouver, WA, recognized how much of a pain this seemingly simple task is and created a free jQuery plugin that other designers can drop into their web projects.

HorizontalNav really alleviates a technical hurdle for web developers. And if you’re both the designer and developer, then you’ll appreciate having simple and powerful (and free!) tools like this to bolt onto a project.
