I'm seeing blue for the background - like the old colour, but perhaps a little darker?

I generally see the sponsored links at the top of the SERPS having a light pink background.
I just saw it with a light blue background.

I haven't seen my colour change for a while, maybe if when you see a different colour you post its hex equivalent using a browser colour picker.

Yup, you are not. Saw screenshots of pink. Have not seen gray screenshots yet.

Once in a thread like pretty much like this one I responded and guessed that folks were probably seeing a test, since Google tends to test stuff a lot.
Shortly thereafter I noticed a blog post saying something along the lines of "Google confirms that..." and linking to the thread with my post, here in the forum, to document that confirmation.
Since then, I've pretty much stopped guessing at what might be going on. ;)
Except that in this case, I'll say that (in spite of many tries) I have yet to any color other than the usual color that I always see, which is really hard for me to even name, since I am color-blind.

Yes, I'm not seeing it anymore but managed to get a screenshot before. We've had pink, grey, light blue, which could potentially all be mistaken for the same colour. The one I saw was a greyish pink #f0e6ff, very close to grey with a tinge of pink.

AWA, what are you trying to say? ;-)

i confirm i see differences on Google.com vs. Google.fr on Chrome.
This color change would be quite a move... i'll leave you guys appreciate it ;)

I'm still seeing the standard pale yellow from here in Australia.

Also seeing the new colour back again on .co.uk

So you know, it is official now. Technically "pale purple."
| 12:56 pm on Jul 28, 2010 (gmt 0)|
Yes I see it now, "pale purple"! I need to either get my monitor calibrated, or my eyes!

That's purple? Totally pink to me.
I begin to see why they changed it to a color that would stand out more.

I'm seeing purple. I think it's an improvement. Makes the top spot pop.

It's a good job they don't make the background WHITE, otherwise we won't be able to tell which links are sponsored.
Oh, wait a moment... they just have :-(
