In traditional web design for PCs, navigation usually covered a sizeable horizontal expanse at the top—the navbar—and the large expanse at the bottom (the footer) also helped. In responsive design, these sizeable expenses are not gifted on a platter. Every screen space counts. Under these strict confines, minimalism makes a rational argument.
The navbar is one of the prominent features of websites. Navbars are responsive ‘meta’ components that serve as navigation headers for your application or site. Navbars collapse in mobile views and become horizontal as the available viewport width increases. At its core, the navbar includes styling for site names and basic navigation.

Amongst a plethora of reasons for pushing responsive design, two stand out prominently—compatibility and versatility. In simpler terms, a design should work fluidly on a number of Operating Systems (both mobile and traditional desktop versions) and browser types—compatibility. The design should also be aesthetically pleasing and functionally apt across the vast majority of screen sizes—versatility.
Moving past the space difficulty, navigation also has to be easily accessible while not demanding much focus from a user. In plain language, a user should not have to peruse the webpage looking for navigation, but on the flip side, the navigation does not have to be an attention-grabber either.
You can also create different variations of the navbar such as navbars with dropdown menus and search boxes as well as fixed positioned navbar with much less effort. I have also shared different types of navigation menus. I believe you will find these helpful. You can easily copy and paste this code and use it in your project.
