Which menu is best?

My thoughts are that #1 looks nicer, but #2 doesn't require visitors to scroll to see the entire menu, so better UX.

Wuddya you think, fediverse?
1st one is nice but that scrollbar is bizarre
I'm not a fan of the scroll. But if you let it wrap, maybe 1
I thought about letting it wrap, but that then take a lot of above the fold space on mobile devices.
hmmm (thinking aloud here) maybe a media query that gets rid of the "button" layout on smaller screens...
And has a max-height for the buttons, with vertical scroll?
reducing the gaps is one idea yeah
what you can also possibly do is have a "show more" thing. But I quite like the icons, wouldn't get rid of these
or the hamburger button
I hate hamburger menus. They're bad for accessibility too.
looks better
#2 is imho better
#2 seems cleaner to my eye
'Definitely #2, and you've already stated part of the why.
number 2 looks better to me 🤔

It looks cleaner and neater. Number 1 looks a bit more flashy, but I really like the simplicity and utility offered by no. 2 :)
#1 doesn't even look nice. Too much visual noise. Horizontal scrollbar should be made illegal.
hahaha! Don't mince your words, Nilesh - say what you really think! 😂

(joking aside I appreciate the candour)
I would not have said it that way, but yeah, what he said ;)
So everyone clearly hates the horizontal scroll on my menu...why didn't any of you guys tell me??? 🙂
Its always subjective and you like it.....
I'm no designer, I can only see how things look better when they are side by side :p I find the second one to look a lot cleaner and nicer :)
I don't think I ever went there lol
Now clicking the "more stuff this way" button and it's not a button and doesn't do anything 😅
yes but it pulses on page load! 😂

I've just pushed the update and the build just completed. It's MUCH better on mobile.
Because no one wanted to hurt your feelings. :) I think the look is pretty and it fits your theme, it's just the scrolling that's.. horrible.
it is pretty, just loose the scroll bar
I was busy scrolling... 😁
I'm surprised you even asked. I'm lazy. If I have to manipulate a horizontal scroll bar to read your precious content, well no, I'm simply not going to bother.
> I'm surprised you even asked

Not sure I agree - different people have different tastes. I personally don't mind horizontal scrolling. So I'm glad I asked now.
You could move logo left, put search on right same line, rest of menu underneath, which would give more space to make it look nicer.
I don't like the scrollbars in the middle. Also "more this way >" is standing out in a way that triggers me. I like the buttons and icons in #1 buy #2 gets my vote.
Two. I'm not sure how user friendly the first is for keyboard users.
#2 much better
Horizontal scrolling is a no go for me also.
1.5: keep the icons but wrap into multiple lines if necessary. It'll look great with horizontal centering (which it appears you already have).
Form follows function any day of the week for me 😅
Second with the redesign buttons
I actually prefer the first one visually, but the scrollbar pisses me off a lot and I don't know why.
the second one is cleaner. I don't like this scrolling bar at the top of the first one.
definitely number 2, you should avoid horizontal scrolling. I'd also consider removing the underline for a more modern appearance
number 1 is best
