New google plus profile look! Smaller cover photo and moved profile tabs

I don't visit every day my profile on google plus, but today I had a nice surprise! Google surprised me with a new profile look, and a few other changes. Finally, the cover size is smaller, and the whole much narrower. I think it's very positive change, because the previous cover size was, to put it mildly - enormous. Changes took place yesterday (13 November 2013).

Take a look!

new cover size




As you can see size cover not use the whole width of the page. The new cover is really an resized old cover photo. Background for the profile is just the blurred version of the same picture. Cover photos remain 16x9 (up to 2120px by 1192px), so no action is required to enjoy the new experience. 

These changes affect both for personal profile and google plus page.

The second thing that has changed is the placement of the profile tabs. They are now underneath the cover. And when you scroll down, it sticks to the top of the page.

This may not be a revolutionary change, but it was much needed. Ridiculously huge cover finally disappeared. Yay! :)

do you know...

The cool feature is that the cover can be added animated gif. See how cool it looks here: 

what's a big deal

This may not be a revolutionary change, but it was much needed. Ridiculously huge cover finally disappeared.

I've read different opinions and not everyone else can see the changes, and some have errors when displaying. Taking into account the fact that the changes are very new probably some percentage of users might experience some errors. But I hope that it will be fixed soon!

If you want to talk about it with other users g+, and share opinion with google, you can do it here: 

I'm curious what you think about that. Do you like this change?
