An alternative to select elements as navigation in narrow viewports | 456 Berea Street.
Responsive design patterns are still under heavy study and development, but there’s a ton of good coming out of the research that’s gone into it so far. In particular one of the more difficult things to achieve is a well balanced navigation when dealing with such a complex UI.
Navigation is arguably the most important problem to solve within every project, without an effective navigation a site inherently becomes less useful. I like this proposed solution for navigation in the mobile context.
