Google App Launcher

This morning when I logged into my Gmail account I noticed the top navigation bar was gone. I use this primarily to access my Google Drive and Google Calendar.

While I understand why they did this, as it is very similar to the Android and Chrome OS App Launcher, it is going to take me a while to get used to it for my Chrome browser and Gmail window. This is mostly due to the fact that there is now an extra click to access my Google Drive and Calendar. I am also hoping that they will at leave give us the ability to edit our App launcher, as I am not sure I like the placement of the apps.

So if you log into Gmail this morning and freak out because your navigation bar is gone, have not fear, your Google Apps are still there under the new App launcher. Reading reviews about this, it appears most people are not really happy with it, and I am not sure yet if I am one of them.
