The black navigation bar found at the top of every Google page has been annoying some users since its very debut, but don't worry — it's about to be old news.
Its replacement? A simple gray bar with a drop-down menu hidden underneath the Google logo.
According to the Official Google Blog, this changing of the guard is part of the company's ongoing redesign — which includes new looks for Search, News, Maps, Gmail and other Google products.
The new navigation bar will include three key features: A drop-down menu hidden under the Google logo, a search box for whichever Google service you're using at the moment and a section for Google+ share and notification tools.
Here's how all those things function together:
Much more appealing than the intrusive black navigation bar, no?
By the way: You shouldn't panic if you're still seeing the old black Google bar. The new one is being rolled out gradually, so it may be a while before it gets to you.
