How Google's Interface Might Change

In an interesting presentation I mentioned yesterday, Jon Wiley, Google's lead designer for search, showed some screenshots that showcase Google's new interface.

There are many design changes that aren't publicly released yet: the navigation bar disappears and it's replaced by a small arrow next to Google's logo that probably lets you choose a different service, the share button and the notification button have a new interface, the application menu has been moved next to the other action buttons, just like in Google Docs. The search options have been moved from the sidebar to the action bar, next to the application menu.

It's likely that the new interfaces have been introduced gradually and the black navigation bar was just a temporary solution. The most striking evidence that these screenshots reveal some future updates is that Google Docs has recently added a new settings menu that seems redundant.
