New bar

Is this supposed to be here? It doesn't fit with the colour scheme of Ask Different, and it appeared recently, without warning or explanation (that I could find).

  • Not sure if the bug tag is 100% fitting, but it seemed to be the best of the necessary tags. – please delete me Oct 6 '11 at 3:11

    This is intentional and temporary. – Jin Oct 6 '11 at 3:37

    This should be permanent. I really like the dash of colors. – Marco Ceppi Oct 6 '11 at 5:27
  • For a split–second I actually thought SE was acquired by Google. — But after reading the news I see the intended symbolism. Kudos! for the design. – Jari Keinänen Oct 6 '11 at 9:08

    I think the colors look nice. It reminds me of Apple's old logo. – Nathan Oct 8 '11 at 3:59

It's the colors of the original Apple Logo:

Apple Logo

It appeared with the update to the site design that added the "Steve Jobs passed away on October 5th, 2011. Rest in peace." line to the top.

    I did recognize the colours, but I wanted to be sure that it was intentional. The colour change actually happened afterwards, about 1 hour ago I was on here, had a normal menu bar, but the Steve Jobs update was there. – please delete me Oct 6 '11 at 3:21

    @Mahnax yeah, it took a little while to make and deploy the design change – Kyle Cronin Oct 6 '11 at 3:39
