Our header isn't a solid color, so the solid topbar looks horrible.

Proposal: Instead of a background-color of #212121, give it some alpha transparency:

background-color: rgba(33, 33, 33, .4);

Which looks like this:

Semi-Transparent Topbar

(I'm using Greasemonkey to put Meta and Chat back in the topbar, that's why I have the links)

It's a good look, I'll give you that. Makes the reputation text a bit hard to read though. –  Shog9 Dec 5 '13 at 5:36
    
This looks so much better! See how the black bar looks over at Christianity SE. Ugh! This would be awesome there as well! –  Wikis Dec 5 '13 at 7:19

I suggested this on meta. –  Wikis Dec 5 '13 at 8:00
    
This Meta.SO post has some userscripts and userCSS that lets you customize the topbar to your liking. –  Keen Dec 5 '13 at 21:19
    
@Keen I've been making my own as I come across something I don't like ;) –  Izkata Dec 6 '13 at 0:05

I have pushed a change to make the topbar now translucent. the CSS I used is rgba(0,0,0,0.8). This way it will play nicer with our sites that are visually heavy.
