Google has redesigned its navigation bar and dubbed it the "Google bar," providing a consistent experience, complete with Google+ across all properties.

Google just announced a completely redesigned navigation bar in line with the redesigns we've already seen for Search, Maps, News, Reader, and Gmail. No longer featuring a dark gray on top, the redesigned bar opts for a light gray across across all Google products for a consistent experience. Hovering over the Google logo will drop down a menu with links to Google+, Image Search, Maps, and other products — there are no longer static links for Google Calendar or Docs. The Google+ push continues here with a share button integrated across all Google properties. The official Google+ account notes that the new bar will start rolling out today for users and should be complete during the next few days.
