Google's Updated Menu Bar

You may be just getting used to the new black menu bar that Google launched in June, but don’t get attached. According to Google, the menu bar is going through another redesign and the black bar you have been seeing for the past few months is about to disappear, and it could happen at any time.

I’m not seeing it yet, but Google was nice enough to include a picture of what the new bar will look like in their blog post.

The new Google bar will sit in the same place as the black bar did but links to various services will appear in a new drop-down menu. If the service you need does not appear in the menu, simply hover over the “More” link at the bottom of the list.

What do you think about Google's latest rounds of design changes? Are they an improvement over the way Google products used to look?

To learn more about the new menu, Google has released the following video or visit their Help Center.

    I think google is doing good by making all their apps themed in all the same style. This is definetly a big improvement for user experience.

    The new site is slower  to use than the last incarnation. due to first  having to locate the drop down menu, then selecting desired menu option., a two stage process,not ideal and not for me.

    More attempts to revitalize the Google + project. I'm actually glad their doing it – the only way Facebook will die right now is if Google + gets better.
