It's still a multicolored blob in the US-- for both Advanced and plain search-- but I do remember seeing the blue one ...

:: explore, explore ::

Ah, right. It's a blue "g" in GWT.

:: further detour to Deal With imaginary URL that g'bot looked for a few days ago, so I've been waiting for it to show up in gwt ::

:: and still further detour to investigate new flurry of-- I assume-- garbage links pushing up the numbers again ::

Blue in FF
Multicolor in Chrome

Oh, didn't think of that.

blue g in Safari and firefox
blob in chrome and opera-- but blue g for google.ca in both
blue g in randomly selected other country in Camino

I think it's about caching. If you go to some google you haven't been to recently, or in a browser you don't normally use, you get the blue g.
