  • Google rolls out New Navigation Bar

  • Does away with underlined links and adds more color to the bar

The new navigation bar is slowly rolled out to all Google users. After more than 6 months of testing, the new navigation bar removes the clutter by grouping extraneous links in a menu inspired by Google Chrome. It also removes link underlining and replaces it with a colored bar. There’s more spacing between the links, so the new navigation bar works better on a touchscreen device.

 



Another change is that Google shows your name instead of your email address. For some reason, Google doesn’t link to the Google Profile and makes it more difficult to switch to a different account if you use multiple sign-in or Gmail delegation. Now you need to click “Switch account” to see the list of accounts you can use.


Unfortunately, Google didn’t manage to add the bar to all its services, so you’ll only see it if you use Google Web Search, Google Image Search, Google Realtime Search, Google Maps and Gmail.
