Breadcrumb trails can be a useful secondary navigation tool for large sites such as online stores.
They facilitate easy navigation back up the hierarchy of a website as well as providing a location indicator for visitors who may have arrived directly at the page (via search or a referring link) without navigating to it.
I thought it would be useful to look at some of the better and more visually interesting implementations of breadcrumb trail design.
