Hidden menus have done a great job in reducing content on the screen, making it easier to read.
Chunky contrasting buttons are a thing of a the past now with the all new ghost buttons. There are transparent buttons, bordered by sleek lines and containing a text in a clear, easy to read font. It gives a very classy and sophisticated look to your website.
