Is it me or is the shaded area highlighting sponsored results above the natural results much lighter than it was earlier.

It is now very difficult for a normal user to decipher paid from sponsored.

If it's good for Google it must be good for Yahoo.

I took a closer look and, unlike Google and MSN, Yahoo numbers the organic results, which makes the separation between paid and organic clearer than Google's.

It's not only you - I've just noticed exactly the same. In a year the background will be set to "white" - mark my words :).
