    Is it my eyes or did Google change the colors of its search results to a darker hue?

    Just wanted to confirm I'm not the only crazy one here :p

    Looks that way for you. Mine are still the same default blue.

    Most likely a setting for you and not global for everyone

    Weird. I investigated and apparently Google randomly selects people for a different color scheme to test what they think. Guess it's just me then :confused:

    I'd be interested in seeing the source of your investigation about Google selecting people for different color schemes. (I'm not challenging your assertion...just curious.)

    How do know what people think of the color schemes? Do they send questionnaires to the "test" folks?

    I dunno, I question it too. It's just what I saw in a few searches of the issue, nothing official from Google that I could see though.

    And yeah, there's no questionnaire or anything. Although it's possible they test based on what links you click or something…

    If it's a bug, it's an interesting bug. It's solved by clearing cookies. Could be a corrupted cookie property.
