Google's currently testing a new-look nav bar that replaces the standard blue underlined links with a much better looking, but subtle, toolbar. Your place in the navigation is now not only indicated by the darkening and bolding of the text, but also by a colorful band across the top of you position.

For e.g., in the images you can see the blue bar on top of the "Web" area indicating you're in a web search.

On the far right side you'll notice a nice big "Sign in" button (with a subtle yellow bar on top of it), and a new settings icon next to that.
