I wonder why Google has pushed Gmail so far down on their new vertical navigation bar. Now I can fix it with the Google Bar+ user script, and do additional customizations! Well, for this screenshot I replaced Gmail with DonationCoder. (requires Greasemonkey or Scriptish for Firefox, or Tampermonkey for Chrome)
Script Summary: Gives new options to the new google toolbar. If the new google bar has not been enabled, this script will enable it. Allows each menu entry to be customized. Allows for a thinner interface. Allows for google Ad blocking. Presets are provided for common menu items (more will be added); If you have an item you think should be a preset please let me know via the discussion link. As of 0.5.6, users are notified of updates right on the google bar!
