elementary Website - Navbar by DanRabbit elementary Website - Navbar by DanRabbit
Round Two. FIGHT!

The nav area on elementaryos.org is getting a little out of control. Here are some thoughts I've had the last couple of days.

The top section deals with login and user names.

The bottom section deals with section selection and breadcrumbs. The very last image is the clicked state for a specific breadcrumb.

One issue that's been brought up in the past with relation to merged the breadcrumbs and main nav is random access to top level sections. One way to solve that is to reveal the main sections if a user mouses over the home button.

One major thing I thing the website needs is a screenshot of the OS on the homepage. probably running on a laptop. Here's an example :thumb268163306:

I know it does, but I think it should be on the homepage too

That padding is kinda excessive. Nice toolbar button styling, though.

I don't get it. Although I do like the larger padding. :)

One thing I still want is more contrast between the background and the toolbar.It makes it hard to distinguish, making it blur together, meaning it looks bland overall. So whilst I like this new idea here (I love the new breadcrumbs), mainly due to the additional contrast added by the green backdrop, I think unless the background of the website is lightened, the navigation, which should be instantly obvious to all users will continue to blend in.

Overall pretty nice though. What would happen if the username got to long? Would it become Really Long U... or would the search box contract to a button like the home button, which when pressed covered up the username? or both?
