I think this would be a good solution for mobile because it works the same way that Safari mobile URL bar works, but I honestly would hate this UX for a desktop site. On a desktop site, I would rather the header just be thin and sticky to the top like Facebook, Twitter, etc. because then it's always there for me when I need it.
Actually I found that it doesn't look that nice on my iPhone... the problem is in fact the safari URL bar makes it jumpy.
I like this plugin, but I think if we're going to make a header disappear/reappear, it should be based on mouse position. If I move my mouse up there, then I can interact with the header.
Looks great! Interested in trying this out.
Anyone knows an JS widget that does the opposite? Show the nav bar when scrolling down?
This looks good, thanks.
