Google Removing Ubiquitous Black Bar

You know that black bar at the top of all Google pages? The one with Google+, Gmail, and the like? Well, apparently it's on the way out according to TheNextWeb.

Brad McCarty:

With the recent redesign of Google products across the board, we’ve been pretty happy overall. Many people, however, have expressed displeasure with that ever-present black bar at the top of their browser when they’re on a Google property. It seems, according to a leaked-then-pulled YouTube video, that it’s going away soon.

Although it doesn't particularly bother me, the supposedly impending redesign looks clean and minimalistic.

Something we can believe in.

What's of biggest interest to me, though, is that Google is taking such an interest in its aesthetics. Hopefully this will be a continuing, responsive trend for the software giant.
