Breadcrumb Navigation

A type of text-based Web site navigation that breaks the site into links of categories and sub-categories allowing major categories of information to be linked in a range of sequential order. Breadcrumb navigation is displayed to the user, so they can easily see exactly where that Web page is located within the Web site. While many types of Web sites use a breadcrumb navigation, it is becoming increasingly common for electronic commerceWeb sites to display categories of products in this way.

An example of a Webopedia breadcrumb might look like this:
Webopedia > World Wide Web > Web Development > breadcrumb navigation
