As you can see, the fixed navbar can take up a disturbing amount of screen real estate, even on desktops. I’ve never liked the fixed navbars for this one reason. I consider this broken and I’d hereby like to propose a fix.
The navigation bar should work as follows:
The navbar is hidden once you start scrolling down. As soon as you scroll up a few pixels it is shown. After that, when you scroll down again it gets hidden. When you have reached the bottom of the page the navigation bar reappears.
This way, the fixed navbar would be perfect, even for mobile devices.
