Menu Samples


Menus are way of moving around a website, at first websites only had one page then hypertext was created. In 1945 Vaneer Bush (1890 -1974) proposed the fore runner to Hypertext and called it Memex. In 1991 Tim Berners-Lee introduced Hypertext to the World Wide Web as a way of joining individual pages together. Browsers at this time did not support Hypertext linking

In 1992 two browsers emerged that supported Hypertext links, neither were released to the public, the first public browser Mosaic was released in 1993 followed in 1994 by Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer in 1995
