Google rolls out persistent nav bar, is set on getting rid of the dark gray strip of text

Google are not finished with their quest of revamping the entirety of Google with their new 'minimalistic' theme. Today intros a new splash of paint for the Google Bar. The usual thin dark gray strip of text will leave us, and be replaced by a persistent UI element that combines the search and Google+ tools, including a share button and notifications.

Quick access to other services is still available in the Google menu, all you need to do is hover over the logo and you'll be happy to see more links. Love it or hate it, it's coming. I don't like the new Reader layout - I hate it. I've kept the old Gmail layout, for now (until its probably pushed in by default).
