Designing and building menus to insert in websites and internet-based applications used to be a rather mundane and tedious task. This is primarily because the process typically required the developer of the site to be somewhat familiar with one of the programming languages used to build websites. In addition, the developer also had to be fairly knowledgeable about each of the different types of internet browsers.

Well, fortunately for the website designers of today, those days are long gone. That's right, creating website menus no longer has to be a hassle. Thanks to several menu building software products, website designers can generate professional looking menus with a simple click of their mouse.

What to Look For

When looking for menu software, there are several things that you should keep in mind. First of all, you should search for a product that doesn't require the user to know a website building programming language. There are a large number of products that employ a simple drag and drop method for generating menu items.

For the best results, the menu software should be capable of generating menu systems in either DHTML or JavaScript. Both of these programming languages have the ability to make web pages dynamic and interactive, which basically means they support animation and popup menus. The menu software should also support all internet browsers and have the ability to create cross browser navigation bars.
