Smashing Magazine has done it again. Theit latest extensive design roundup is a Showcase Of Well-Designed Tabbed Navigation.
When you look at tabbed navigations, you will also notice many styling trends. First, many tabs will have rounded corners on buttons. This helps to create a clean look. Also helping to make a clean look is the use of separation between buttons. Most well use space to separate buttons, but a bevel, single line, or background color contrast will also look nicely.
A little bit of analysis and a lot of images, as is common on Smashing Magazine.
Tabs are a popuar way to style navigation as of late, and an effective one at that. The roundup has a lot of creative examples, and is certainly worth looking at if you do much in the way of design work.
