New Design Coming to Google products menu bar

Google announced yesterday that there is a new look coming to the Google bar (that black bar at the top of the page when you are logged into Google products. The black bar is gone.

The new design will place the links to the Google services in a drop down menu under the Google logo. A list will be displayed of some services and then you can click "more" to see the rest. The menu links to Google+, Web Search, Image Search, Google Maps, YouTube, Google News, Gmail, Google Docs, and adds some new ones: Google Wallet, Google Offers, Google Music, Google Mobile and Blogger.

In addition, Google+ notifications, your profile menu and the +share box will be displayed to the right of the search box. 

I like it. It's much cleaner and easier to use and there are more services on the menu. The black bar was a bit distracting.

The new design will be rolling out to users over the next few days.
