Sounds like it should have an obvious, clear-cut answer, but I couldn't find much mention of it: When building a website, what breakpoint / width is most ideal to switch from a horizontal tab-style nav menu to a vertical toggle mobile menu, hidden behind a 'hamburger' ☰ icon?
Seeing as I mostly seem to be designing websites with a container width of 1200px, and there aren't many desktop / laptop computer screen sizes below that, I've been getting the mobile menu to kick in at / below that 1200px width, which simplifies my workflow somewhat.
But is it good practice? Is there an audience of device users who would prefer a lower breakpoint? Perhaps iPad users in landscape orientation would prefer a "normal" menu?
I've seen websites that have a collapsible mobile-style menu for all widths, including desktop, so I guess it comes down to the desired UX on a case-by-case basis, however it would be useful to know of any unforeseen considerations.
