Out with the old, in with the new

No primary category set

Anyone waking up this morning can’t have missed the new eBay header as soon as they logged on! Colourful, bright and new functionality such as the drop down for fast navigation to top level categories.

Of course we’ve been expecting this ever since eBay.com got it’s new header. The eBay.com header has the facility to search a category but that’s missing on eBay.co.uk and we just have a longer search box instead. Also missing are links to eBay Motors and eBay Express, it’s a real shame they didn’t go one step further than the US and add them in along with a link to eBay Shops. eBay.co.uk is missing the drop down quick links which you can see if you hover over the Buy, Sell, My eBay, Community, and Help links on eBay.com, these would be useful if they added them for quick navigation of the site.

So which do you prefer? The new header or the old one? Just for anyone that’s already forgotten what it looked like here it is one last time!
