Every blog/website must have a horizontal/vertical menu at top of blog which helps readers to easily navigate through your blog,also it helps you to arrange your important links on the menu.Today I am sharing a beautiful horizontal menu which works with pure CSS3 and it is designed by dynamicdrive.When any user hovers on it a brick appears on the link which increase the beauty of the menu,I also really like it :) As I mentioned the biggest advantage of this menu is it works with only CSS3,no any single image is used in this menu also the hover brick is made with CSS3.As it works with only CSS3 it has some limitations.Here is a one back point of the menu is it's not a drop down menu it is a single horizontal menu :( It is good for small blogs which have less number of links.Now without waiting anymore lets go to the tutorial.See the preview of the menu in below image.
