Change the top bar with this:
Everything important up top was moved to the right, which I think is a ludicrous idea. It's the only thing I really dislike about the new changes, so I was happy to see that someone was kind enough to spread word about how to put it back in the center, where it's much better off.
Here is what I now see after using that link, which literally took less than a minute:
Cool. My username and notifications are back in the center and not practically blending into the top bar on the right. How stupid...
Hope this helps!
