    I don't particularly like it. I haven't done research concerning why they did it,
    but I prefer the clean white look.

    Your thoughts?

    I like it only because it matches my OS theme. They should make the text white not grey.

    The contrast makes it more noticeable, and since it is useful, it's logical to bring attention to it. Effective web browsing, anyone?

    I don't have it.

    It wouldn't look bad with my Firefox persona though.

    Can't help but wonder how much money they wasted planning and developing that, then programming it, and it doesn't make the slightest bit of difference. I can only assume it's to make it stand out more so the 'special' people (IE: chavs, etc, not people with genuine disabilities, unless you count being thick and ignorant as a disability) banging their faces into the keyboard in search of weed dealers in their area can have a slightly easier time.

    I'm using a black theme for Google (Firefox Stylish addon), so it doesn't really affect me much. :3 But still, it would be nice if they had the option of either all white or all black, it would look better.

    I believe this is just part of their new look.

    I don't dislike it, I just found it more confusing and out of place. It doesn't look right.
    But it is better than Youtube updates.

    I find Google annoying in general ever since they've started filtering search results. I use startpage, it's better, and it's private.
