Google has replaced its black navigation bar with a new navigation menu. This new navigation menu will be visible on all the Google web services including Gmail and YouTube. The new drop down menu will have a grid icon shows a list of 9 popular Google services (Google+, Web Search, YouTube, Maps, Play, News, Gmail, Drive, Calendar) and you can click "more" or scroll down to see 8 other services (Translate, Books, Offers, Wallet, Shopping, Blogger, Finance and Google+ Photos).
Enable it right now!

If you want to use the new navigation system right now then follow this guide:

  • Open google.com in a new tab
  • Load your browser's developer console:
    Chrome or Opera 15+: press Ctrl+Shift+J for Windows/Linux/ChromeOS or Command-Option-J for Mac 
    Firefox: press Ctrl+Shift+K for Windows/Linux or Command-Option-K for Mac 
    Opera 12: press Ctrl+Shift+I for Windows/Linux or Command-Option-I for Mac, then click "Console" 
    Internet Explorer: press F12 and select the "Console" tab.
  • Paste the following code which changes a Google cookie:
    document.cookie="PREF=ID=e66a207a51ceefd8:U=936bafc98b2a9121:FF=0:LD=en:NR=10:CR=2:TM=1378808351:LM=1379592992:SG=1:S=OXyq0fqClYB66VuV ; path=/; domain=google.com";window.location.reload();
  • Press Enter and close the console.
  • To go back to the regular interface, use the same instructions, but replace the code from step 3 with this one: 
    document.cookie="PREF= ; path=/; domain=google.com";window.location.reload();

You will also notice a new flat Google logo:




Here's the old black nav menu for comparison:
