A Material Design inspired tab menu featuring an animated sliding link underline that moves with a ripple click effect as you click a tab. 

How to use it:

1. Create a tab menu with a slider from an Html unordered list.

<ul>
  <li>Tab One</li>
  <li>Tab Two</li>
  <li>Tab Three</li>
  <li class="slider"></li>
</ul>

2. Style the tab menu.

ul {
  font-size: 0;
  position: relative;
  padding: 0;
  width: 480px;
  margin: 40px auto;
  user-select: none;
}

li {
  display: inline-block;
  width: 160px;
  height: 60px;
  background: #E95546;
  font-size: 16px;
  text-align: center;
  line-height: 60px;
  color: #fff;
  text-transform: uppercase;
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;
  cursor: pointer;
}

3. Style the slider for the sliding link underline.

.slider {
  display: block;
  position: absolute;
  bottom: 0;
  left: 0;
  height: 4px;
  background: #4FC2E5;
  transition: all 0.5s;
}

4. Create the ripple click effect using CSS3 animations.

.ripple {
  width: 0;
  height: 0;
  border-radius: 50%;
  background: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.4);
  -webkit-transform: scale(0);
  -ms-transform: scale(0);
  transform: scale(0);
  position: absolute;
  opacity: 1;
}

.rippleEffect {
  -webkit-animation: rippleDrop .6s linear;
  animation: rippleDrop .6s linear;
}

@-webkit-keyframes 
rippleDrop {  100% {
 -webkit-transform: scale(2);
 transform: scale(2);
 opacity: 0;
}
}

@keyframes 
rippleDrop {  100% {
 -webkit-transform: scale(2);
 transform: scale(2);
 opacity: 0;
}
}

5. Include the latest version of jQuery library on your web page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-2.1.4.min.js"></script> 

6. Enable the tab menu.

$("ul li").click(function(e) {

  if ($(this).hasClass('slider')) {
    return;
  }

  var whatTab = $(this).index();

  var howFar = 160 * whatTab;

  $(".slider").css({
    left: howFar + "px"
  });

  $(".ripple").remove();

  var posX = $(this).offset().left,
      posY = $(this).offset().top,
      buttonWidth = $(this).width(),
      buttonHeight = $(this).height();

  $(this).prepend("<span class='ripple'></span>");

  if (buttonWidth >= buttonHeight) {
    buttonHeight = buttonWidth;
  } else {
    buttonWidth = buttonHeight;
  }

  var x = e.pageX - posX - buttonWidth / 2;
  var y = e.pageY - posY - buttonHeight / 2;

  $(".ripple").css({
    width: buttonWidth,
    height: buttonHeight,
    top: y + 'px',
    left: x + 'px'
  }).addClass("rippleEffect");
  
});
