Bootstrap navbar component is useful for creating responsive navigation header for a website. By responsive, we mean that the navbar is collapsed on small screen size devices like mobile phones. When the toggle button is clicked the navbar expands. However, on large screen devices like laptops and desktops, where we have enough room to display the entire navbar, it appears normal.

Useful nvabar classes
Class Purpose
navbar-inverse Modifies the look of the navbar by creating an inverted variation of it
navbar-fixed-top Creates navbar that is fixed on the top of the page
navbar-fixed-bottom Creates navbar that is fixed at the bottom of the page

Please note : 
1. To center and pad navbar content use container or container-fluid classes.
