Pratul - Drupal CMS

Published in: Business, Technology
  • Thanx OracleLink.com.... and ur website is nicely done.... ur top nav is too quick, and it appears to be flickering because of that.... u might consider slowing it down a little bit, maybe use some JS transition or something..... I know it sounds weird but I think it wud be much softer to the eyes if you introduce a fade-in/fade-out transition to it..... just my 2 cents :)
