Boring Old Menu Bar1.12

16 December 2020

Catalina menu bar on Big Sur.

Overview

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 1.12:
  • The new version improves support for slide show-style wallpapers.

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.

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.

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.
