"Breadcrumbs" or "breadcrumb trail" is a navigation aid used in user interfaces. It allows users to keep track of their locations within programs or documents.
There are three types of web breadcrumbs:
- Path: path breadcrumbs are dynamic and show the path that the user has taken to arrive at a page.
- Location: location breadcrumbs are static and show where the page is located in the website hierarchy.
- Attribute: attribute breadcrumbs give information that categorizes the current page.
