New navigation bar style!

From Gmail, I'm seeing a new navigation bar on top. It looks awesome!
It's light-gray, the e-mail address has been hidden (good move!) and replaced by my name (privacy: +1) and all the clutter of settings, labs, help, logout, etc has been moved to a small (but yet notable) gear icon at the top right corner.
I like it! Screenshot:


I can see this in at least two accounts I use.

I like!
Massive improvement, even though I hadn't noticed anything wrong with the bar before :)
Only seeing it on Gmail on my PC. Not seeing it on any services on my Laptop. (Same account)

They have been testing this for awhile and it appears that it's now rolling out to everyone... I've been seeing it more and more on different computers over the last few days. [PersonRank 10]

It's very nice! to bad it isn't on the Dutch version yet.

It's funny how the "Even More" option (on the "More" menu) actually leads to fewer options than you can get to directly from Gmail.

There was once a time when "Even More" was packed full of interesting services.

I've been seeing this too. It doesn't happen every time but shows up a lot when I'm trying to access my iGoogle page.

One more click is now needed if you want to log out.
Google wants to keep its users logged in?

same here... I was about to post a screenshot to twitter then thought I would see if anyone here has seen it.... anyone think this is the next step in googles social networking mission?

Now I'm at home and I don't see it. Even after a fresh reload. The only things that changed are my IP (same ISP though) and OS (I was using Ubuntu, now I'm on Win7).
I guess it will be fully rolled out soon anyway.
