A navbar, or navigation bar, is an interactive user element with a menu or a set of links to a website’s main sections. It is typically positioned at the top or side of a website and provides easy access to different pages quickly.
Web developers create navbars in HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and style them in CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). HTML structures the placement of their links and buttons, while CSS specifies their visual appearance, such as its colors, fonts, and layout.
A personal blog’s navbar, for example, might direct users to the home page, about page, and posts, while an ecommerce website will include links to product categories, a shopping cart, and a customer account page.
