Doing it with style

CSS MENUSCSS3 - The future now - menus fade in/border radius/drop shadow/gradient fill

Date : 24th January 2010

For all modern browsers

This demo is too wide for your mobile screen.
Please view on a tablet or PC.


The ONLY gaphics used in this menu are the right and left arrows to indicate the sub menus.

This takes one of my anywidth menus and applies CSS3 styling to give corner radii, drop shadows, gradient fill, and fade in transitions.

The only two 'final release' browsers that can reproduce all these styles are Safari and Google Chrome, but I am informed that the next release of Opera and Firefox will be able to correctly style this menu. I will add the additional styles when the new versions of these browsers is released.

So Safari and Chrome will have all the styles, Firefox will have the border radii and drop shadows, Opera and IE8 will just have the plain boxes with gaps between the sub menus and finally IE6 and IE7 will have a plain dropdown/flyout menu.

So another menu that would have taken many lines of javascript can now be achieved with just a couple of lines of CSS.

Firefox v3.6 released which now supports gradient fills, so I have added this to the menu.
