Hello
I am trying to design a Responsive nav bar for my website.
Many tutorials put a hamburger menu on the navbar when you resize the website to mobile.
Then the user has to click on it to see the Menu options vertically.

I have seen some sites (and mine so far) where the menu just resizes to vertical when the screen resizes to mobile.

It seems to me that the extra coding for the hamburger bar icon, and the javascript for the user to click to show the menu options is really not the best option.

What do you think?

I think you should have styles with no hamburger, with hamburger, and everything in between!

The correct answer is to do what works best for the user.

It all depends on your menu and whether you're likely to expand it in the future. Ideally, you want to eliminate as many extra clicks for the user as possible, so if you can avoid the hamburger, do it.
