Boring Old Menu Bar for Mac1.23

05 November 2021

Catalina menu bar on Big Sur.

What is Boring Old Menu Bar for Mac

Boring Old Menu Bar was developed to bring the "perfectly fine" macOS Catalina menu bar to macOS 11 Big Sur.

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.

Features:
  • Different styles of menu bar
  • Rounded corners for both the menu bar and the screen!
  • Customizable colors
  • Detects resolution and wallpaper changes
  • Supports multiple monitors
  • Perfectly safe because it runs as a normal application without extra privileges and with no "funny business", e.g. no KEXT, haxies, run-time patching, etc.

What's new in Boring Old Menu Bar

Version 1.23:
  • The new version fixes an issue with the corner settings.

Brilliant. Gives you a nice clearly defined menu bar again. Doesn't effect the resolution of your wallpapers like other solutions. Nice customisation options. Insta buy!

Simply does nothing most of the time, certainly not at start up…

It took me all of 20 seconds 'testing' this app to make the decision to go and pay for it. Without this I would have dumped BigSur, a light coloured Menu Bar in a Dark Theme where all my gauges are - duh!

It works, but how it works is majorly hacktastic. There has got to be a better way to directly fix this abomination in Big Sur.

Why the h*ll this app should be necessary, but thank god it's available. So many unnecessary changes in the Big Sur UI that are inefficient.

The menu bar in Big Sur is blue, dark enough so the icons are not properly visible. I have no idea why Apple thought this was a good idea but this fixes it. Brilliant.

I don't understand the negative review. This is a welcomed addition to my Big Sur installation. Sure, they might change this, but hey—I picked up the forever upgrade option.
