Well, that didn’t last long. Google is killing off their black navigation bar, which has been an eyesore since day one of Google+. In its place, Google is going with a more robust Google Bar (in Google Gray).
I don’t see it yet, but I imagine there will be some sort of controversy about Google shoving their other products in your face (though the reality is that they’ve done this for a long time). At least this new bar looks nicer and offers a more uniform experience.
I’m still predicting that all of this eventually goes a level up to Chrome itself.
