Mega Drop-Down Navigation Menus

Jakob Nielsen recommends using mega drop-down navigation menus over regular link-only drop down menus because of brightetter usability.

His reasons are:

  • Easier to present all the links without scrolling, instead of hiding them
  • Can easy group related items together
  • Illustrations can help explain links

Mega drop down menus may be the appropriate solution to use on a clients website if they have more than a few navigation links.
