Google is Getting a Redesign


The Google we know and love is getting a significant navigation overhaul. Introducing the new Google Toolbar which has Google’s CEO, Larry Page rather excited:

In short, the bulk of the navigation will now appear in a drop-down menu which will appear whenever you hover over the Google logo. The area which once had the toolbar will now be a static area for searching the specific Google application you are currently utilizing and to see any Google Plus notices as they arrive. Here is the video:

What do you think of this change-up? It is fairly significant but my take is I like the simplicity and usability of the change.

    I don’t see these options (Develop >) in my task bars for Safari, Chrome or Ffx.
