macOS 11 Big Sur does many things right and after a bit of getting used to, the visual style really grows on you. The transparent menu bar, however, is a bit of a legibility nightmare and something I could not live with. So I developed Boring Old Menu Bar to bring the "perfectly fine" macOS Catalina menu bar to macOS 11 Big Sur and later.
The Catalina menu bar is perfectly fine, but white looks better in the light mode.. and while I'm at it why not add more options?
Should Apple have gone for rounded screen corners to complete the iPad-esque look? Judge yourself.
Boring Old Menu Bar is brought to you by a development team with over 20 years of Mac software development experience, and is based on the very latest platform technologies.
