Google Redesigns its Navigation Bar

Google has taken another big step in its redesign journey by completely overhauling its navigation bar. The new Google bar has been designed with the same unifying, simplistic look and feel of Search, News, Maps, Translate and Gmail, among other products.

Rather than keeping the old black bar on top, Google bar is introducing a new way for users to quickly navigate between its many services. By hovering over the Google logo, a menu will drop down with links to areas like Gmail, Maps and Documents, while Google+ tools are placed in the top right similar to the old bar.

“Making navigation and sharing super simple for people is a key part of our efforts to transform the overall Google experience,” said Eddie Kessler, Google Technical Lead.

The all new look should already be rolling out to most users, although I’m still looking at the same old black navigation bar.

What do you think of the Google bar?
