Apple style horizontal menu for blogger with search box | 101helper blogger menus

In my previous post I have shared a 3D menu for blogger and now in this post I am back with a new blogger menu. Its a stylish Apple(Iphone) style horizontal menu. It is designed with pure CSS, there is no use of jquery. It has a neat and clean design with a decent color, look and responsive effect. A search box is also floating on right hand side of this menu which has also a responsive design i.e it becomes long when it is hovered by mouse. Another amazing effect in this menu is that when search box is used the whole menu shrinks. You can take a look in below image. Hope you like it:
