Ode to the Hamburger


Credit: Eric Arbe

I’ve had mixed feelings about the ‘Hamburger’ menu used on Mobile.  I tend to not see them.  If I’m lost, however, I will seek them out. They feel like an idiom that is not quite fully ingrained.  I think they’re getting there, though.  I’m convinced that they will be wired to muscle memory for most within a few years.  They do solve a problem: how do I put lots of options on a small screen?

Vincent Feeny at indietech as an interesting article about this – “Can we leave hamburgers alone?“.  Take a look and let me know what you think!

    Like the referenced article says – hamburger menus (and similar solutions) are circumstantially appropriate. It depends. This seems to be more common on mobile devices where space is an issue. However, I am seeing more and more sites with the hamburger menu icon on the desktop version, which doesn’t make much sense to me.
