Not sure if this is old news, but the navigation menus still show up with javascript disabled. Turn off javascript and check it out. I know there was some initial umbrage when Google introduced the current navbar that they would _require_ javascript and not provide graceful degradation.

Of course, how are you actually using the Internet* with JS disabled? Personally, I don't take offense when sites require it, but still, I'm happy to see these little changes--gives me faith that Google is at least listening to the complaints leveled fairly against it.

*Not just browsing, but actually _using_ the Internet.

Yeah, they fixed it in less than a week after they launched the new homepage.
