booNavigation is a lightweight jQuery dropdown menu plugin that provides a simple way to create a three-column mega menu with CSS3 based sliding effects for your website navigation.

How to use it:

1. Make sure to load the jQuery booNavigation plugin after jQuery library before closing body tag.

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script> 
<script src="js/booNavigation.js"></script> 

2. Create a mega menu with tons of sub menus using nested unordered lists.

<nav id="booNavigation" class="booNavigation">
<ul>
<li class="navItem"> <a href="#" title="First Item">Category</a>
<ul class="navContent">
<li>
<ul>
<li><a href="#" title="">Item 1</a>
<li/>
<li><a href="#" title="">Item 2</a>
<li/>
<li><a href="#" title="">Item 3</a>
<li/>
</ul>
</li>
<li>
<ul>
<li><a href="#" title="">Item 4</a>
<li/>
<li><a href="#" title="">Item 5</a>
<li/>
<li><a href="#" title="">Item 6</a>
<li/>
</ul>
</li>
<li>
<ul>
<li><a href="#" title="">Item 7</a>
<li/>
<li><a href="#" title="">Item 8</a>
<li/>
<li><a href="#" title="">Item 9</a>
<li/>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
</nav>

3. The call we have to do to execute the plugin with optional settings.

<script>
(function() {
$('#booNavigation').booNavigation({
slideSpeed: 600,
fadeSpeed: 200,
delay: 500
});
})();
</script>

4. The required CSS to style the mega menu.

.booNavigation {
    position: relative;
}

.booNavigation li.navItem {
    background-color: #CC33FF;
    border-top: 5px solid #9900CC;
    padding: 5px 20px;
    float: left;
    text-decoration: none;
    transition: all .3s ease;
    -webkit-transition: all .5s ease;
    -moz-transition: all .5s ease;
    -ms-transition: all .5s ease;
    -o-transition: all .5s ease;
}

.booNavigation li.navItem:hover {
    background-color: #444;
    border-color: #000;
    cursor: pointer;
}

.booNavigation li.navItem > a {
    color: #fff;
}

.booNavigation li.navItem .navContent {
    background-color: #444;
    left: 0;
    position: absolute;
    top: 35px;
    width: 100%;
    z-index: 999;
}

.booNavigation .navContent > li {
    color: #fff;
    float: left;
    padding: 10px;
    width: 30%;
}

.booNavigation .navContent ul li a {
    color: #fff;
    display: block;
    padding: 10px;
    transition: all .3s ease;
    -webkit-transition: all .3s ease;
    -moz-transition: all .3s ease;
    -ms-transition: all .3s ease;
    -o-transition: all .3s ease;
}

.booNavigation .navContent ul li a:hover {
    background-color: #555;
