Megamenus are special drop-down menus, which instead of listing sub-menu options in a simple vertical list, using special HTML formatting, they can display the sub-menu very creatively.
Also, the drop-down panel can contain any HTML elements, from videos, to images, contact forms, and everything else.
Basically, a megamenu will allow the user to display any content in the drop-down.
