Google recently launched a new design which sports a new Black menu bar with grey colored text. The new menu bar is an eyesore and is being hated by many people.
If you are someone who does not like the new design change by Google, here are few ways to disable or change it back to an earlier version with white background and blue links (coming soon). Right now you completely disable the black menu bar on all Google pages.
The trick uses a Greasemonkey script so you will need a compatible browser or user a workaround to run Greasemonkey scripts in Opera, Internet Explorer or Safari.
Like I said, right now I just hide the bar completely, but I am working on modifying the script to change the black bar to an earlier version of Google. Stay tuned for updates on this post to know when it has been updated. I have tested the script and it works in Opera, Firefox and Google Chrome. I am still testing it in Internet Explorer 9.
In the meantime, have fun without the ugly black bar in Google Search. You can download and install the Google Black Bar hider script from here.
Update: You can also return back to the classic toolbar for Google by installing this script.
