Get back the light Google NAVBar (instead of black)

For the last 2-3 days, we’ve been seeing a black NAV bar on top of Google’s pages instead of the light coloured one we are used to. The black bar isn’t really appropriate for light pages and here’s how you can fix it.

Google Chrome:

If you use Google Chrome, just go to this userscript page and click on ‘Install’ and choose ‘Continue’ when Google asks for confirmation.

Mozilla Firefox:

If you use Firefox, get started by installing the Greasemonkey add-on for your browser. Now, go to this userscript page and click on ‘Install’ on the webpage and choose ‘Install’ from the Greasemonkey installation that pops-up. After completing this, you shouldn’t see the black NAVbar again.

Internet Explorer:

Internet explorer users can make use of the IE7Pro add-on. After the installation of IE7Pro, you can install the userscript from this page.

P.S. If you don’t understand what userscripts are, this is a recommended read.
