Time for some jQuery again. As we all know, jQuery is of the best JavaScript libraries we have ever seen. So today, I’m again sharing a collection of jQuery and css powered menu bars, i.e. navigation bars.

Navigation is the backbone of any website.  And this is one of the things that make that first impression on a visitor. And also, this is the element of your website or blog which is the most used by any visitor.

The conclusion is that the navigation bar should be approached with great care. jQuery plugins are more than suited for the task. Here are some brilliant examples of jQuery based menus and the tutorials to make them.
