Update: If you hate the new Black Menu Bar in Google, here is How To Disable Black Menu Bar in Google Search.

Google has been known for it’s simplistic design on their pages except for when they decide to use some fancy on it. However, apart from that their clean white interface with minimal links has been liked my numerous amounts of people.

However, off late, Google has been playing around with a lot of new design changes for their home page and search results pages. It all started when they decided to add a Bing link background to their homepage and continued with a slew of other changes including removing the “I am feeling Lucky” button, using a new design for search results and yet more, simplifying the image search results, adding top references to results and more.

New Google Homepage

The new updates were targeted towards changing the look and feel of Google and their search results. Today, they also rolled out a major update to their home page where they have made the Google logo smaller and have moved the links to the bottom of the page. They have also added a new navigation bar at the top of the page to allow users to navigate through their services.

I found the black color used in the bar a huge contrast to their homepage. I would have preferred to see the old white background with blue colored links. Right now it looks very similar to what has as a menu bar.

Google claims that its new design provides more focus to the user and is created using the latest technologies like and WebGL. Don’t expect it to work on older browsers.

Additionally, Google has also rolled out the Google+ social media service and What Do You Love which is a new search engine to find information about what you love.
