Hi. My name is David and I like right navs (better than left navs).
Thank you for hearing my confession.
Why I like right nav...
Content in the main body of the page takes center stage. The body
content is the first thing you see when the page loads. Yes the nav is
always there but its not in your face. Its there when you need it but
doesn't seem to compete with the body content as much.
Why part of me worries the nav should be on the left...
My nagging internal voice keeps saying: Industry standards. Most
corporate sites have nav on the left (and my site, macromedia.com, is a
corporate site). Differing from this standard introduces an unnecessary
obstacle to users' learned behavior. Go with the flow. Leverage the
standard, leverage the user expectation.... <and on and on...>
