“Just as Hansel and Gretel created a breadcrumb trail to find their path back home, today’s internet user often finds a need to get back to a website’s previously visited locations; hence, the cyber ‘breadcrumb trail’ was created.

For example, the breadcrumb path for a leather chair on the Office Max website would be: Home > Furniture > Chairs > Leather Chairs. The location of the navigational path is often prominently placed in the upper left quarter of the website page.”
