CSS-based navigation

Posted on: August 11, 2007

There was a survey done amongst American internet users to find out how much time they wait for a webpage to load and how long before they cancel it. Answer was 4 seconds! This is the reality that users want more user friendly website plus they have no time to wait to see how much time it takes to load a page! Now, as a developer you gotta find the answer how you can do this job for users, ultimately your users are your website heart.

Like Navigation. People use image or JavaScript navigation. Every time you send HTTP request to your sever it takes a lot of times to load images. All of which can seriously affect the usability and accessibility of a site plus if you use images for navigation then your clunky navigation is stopping you to achieving a decent search engine ranking! So what is the solution?

CSS allows you to create attractive navigation that, in reality, is no more than text. Text that can be marked up in such a way as to ensure that it’s both accessible and understandable by all those who can’t physically see your design.

Navigation is a big part of a website. Css-based can help us to improve the accessibility of our sites.
