What's with these new swollen text ads that shrink when you move the mouse over them? Anyone else seeing these?

This can't be good.

I've heard about ads that change on mouse over, but I haven't seen any on my sites yet.

they're everywhere now. I just check two other sites similar to mine and they're both running these. They're making it harder and harder to integrate the ads with the site content. First it was the "ads by Google" text, then those big ugly arrows, and now these new swollen ads that are 5 times the size of normal text.

Look ridiculous.

Quick update. I'm only seeing these new ads when using Firefox browser.
