Why this was not blogged shortly here?

For anyone older or with a vision problem the black bar and grayed out features represent a real set back from what was "good design"

The original Google layout allowed easy use, with high contrast symbols against a white background.

For every purpose including search results, and feature selection the original design "worked".

The new design does not.

___________

Leaving the esthetics aside, I will be looking for ways to undo this "hostile" step (hostile to those of us who have any vision problems), and if necessary switch to another search engine that does undo good designs with poor ones (even if the style seems fine, the design actually detracts from usefulness).
