An updated version of Google bar.The official Google blog

Based on feedback from users, Google has recently announced a new update to the Google bar - the navigation bar that runs across Google products - including Google menu, the search box and the Google+ sharing facility.

According to a post on Google's official blog, the world's most popular search engine has introduced an updated version believed to provide a better overall experience. Their decision is based on users' feedback.

Google launched a new design, including a unified search box and Google+ sharing and notifications across Google sites in November last year and the updated design retains many feature changes carried out during the aforementioned time.

The notable change now is that the drop-down Google menu had been replaced with a consistent and expanded set of links that runs across the top of the page.

"Two months ago, we announced our plans to roll out a new design for the Google bar. Our goal was to create a beautifully simple and intuitive experience across Google. Based on your feedback, we realized there were some elements of the new bar that we could improve, and with that in mind, we're introducing an updated version that we believe will provide a better experience. The new design retains many of the feature changes we made in November that proved popular, including a unified search box and Google+ sharing and notifications across Google," said a statement on Google's official blog.
