    This needs to do the thing that Amazon's mega menu does that cancels out accidental hover events. Maybe it could be made to do so with this.

    This is nice, but it animates like a lot of sites/widgets these days and I can't stand it. Why when I click does the menu slide in from below? And when I hover a link, the submenu comes in from the right? The visual model feels totally arbitrary and makes no sense.

    Looks great. My only issue is that the reliance on mouse-hover makes it unusable on touch screen desktop computers. I know I know, who even uses touch screen desktops? The loudest people, that's who.

      I think this is a tiny subset of users that are very often forgotten about, however most touchscreen desktop have a mouse and keyboard so it shouldn't be tooooooo much of a prob.

        That's fair :) However, coming from a company that builds themes, we hear about this all the time, and for that reason wouldn't be able to implement this as it is. Not to say it isn't a fun component.

        Even if it’s a small number, the interaction should separately consider viewport and capability (in this case, touch or no-touch).

        In the past (and even still today) we could get away with equating viewport size with device. E.g. “If under 500px, they are probably using a smartphone!”

        But eventually, we will move past that point (if we haven’t already), so there’s no time like the present to start doing it the “right” way.

    I think I prefer their previous mega menu with a mobile fallback. It suffers from some of the same things mentioned here, but it seems a little more subtle.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Looks nice but I don't like that you hover to open the main menus and then you click to open the sub menus. Also, the mobile menus have a different colour scheme.
