that's great, but why igoogle does not have that navbar yet is a mystery to me as it is supposed to be the initial hub for your Google world ...

iGoogle has the navbar. Maybe they should place Reader next to Gmail or Groups on the main navbar now.

Well the blue line had been there for a few weeks so I was kinda expecting this.

Because iGoogle==Google.com if you choose to use the personalized homepage. A cookie preference tells Google to send you to the classic homepage or to the personalized one.

I think Reader isn't on the navbar because it can't yet handle the traffic the navbar would send it. Which is a shame (for me), because Reader is the only Google product I use as often as Gmail.

I noticed some inconsistency:

On Google Reader the navbar reads Gmail instead of simply Mail. They use 'Mail' on every other property the navbar is used (e.g. Calendar and Documents)

Brock, you're right, but you can find a link to Reader if your inbox is empty and other one in the "more" menu.

I wish they would add Notebook to the list of links.
