    700 million or so Facebook mobile and app users know what the hamburger means as it was on both, it's probably a safe bet your user will understand it

      I totally agree with this sentiment. Designer complain about Google still using a Floppy Disk as the basis of their Save icon (because it is outdated and represent a physical parallel)—I think that ought should be creating new paradigms for icon design and the hamburger icon is a prolific and successful example.

      To the original author: I don't think it should become the default on desktop, but I am a fan for mobile.

      Bonus link: I am reworking my personal site and currently using a hamburger menu WITH the word Menu. Still experimenting for now: http://andy.is/new/
