Making bread crumbs look COOL

I need 4 or 5 good sites that have interesting ways of displaying bread crumbs.

For example when I created this question here in EE, I had links showing me sort of the heirarchy of the site and how I got here:



    * Home
          o All Topics
                + Web Development
                      # Graphics
                            * Ask a Question


I am looking for creative ideas to get my juices flowing.

Hi knowlton,

The  reason for the breadcrumb is to alert the user as to where they are on the site, and provide a means (links in the breadcrumbs) to navigate. Your content is most important, and the breadcrumbs should not be distracting (in my opinion) but rather simply informative.

If you want to use small graphics, find ones that resonate with the theme of your site. The / or the > are usually the best as they indicate a structure. You may find graphical arrows or bullets that are consistent with the theme of your site.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

What about little graphics that look like breadcrumbs, and a little boy & girl for the page currently on...You could even have a "run away from witch" to get to the top level. ;-)
