    No, really what were they thinking? Its not UI intuitive, nor is it visually pleasing. :brick:

    Yeah, I hate it

    I have had it on my home computers for a few weeks but it hasn't hit my work computers yet. I'm still pissed that they pulled reader off of the ugly BLACK bar and made me click into a drop down...but now when I am at home, I have to go into the drop down menu, and then pop open a second menu to get to reader.

    What a fucking joke.

    Google is not the company it used to be.

    That usually happens when you become a behemoth.

    Also, I don't like the look of the black bar either, however, I'd rather have it than the terrible pull down menu.

    i thought google was about simplicity... it's all about easy or simple access...

    i want to access gmail, calendar, news, etc. in 1 click not pull down then other shit.

    I'm not seeing any pull down things on my Google homepage, just the usual black menu bar.

    I think they got rid of it rather quickly, since I no longer get it either. :)
