From the 'Why can't they leave well enough alone' file.

Google's newest change to it's search interface has the navigation bar at the top of the page going from white to black.
I'm seeing more nays than ayes.

Personally I am undecided yet whether I like it or not.

Chrome users may have an advantage, others will have to use an add-on until/if Google creates a toggle switch for it.

noticed it, it hadn't really bothered me though.
They've made it a bit more of a pain to search for hd wallpaper sized images too.

I quite like it. It would be nice to have a way to change the color scheme though. I guess there will be extensions being feverishly developed even as I type.

Why can't they follow the example here and just give you a brief dropdown theme selection to cater to people that prefer a dark or light scheme.

Forum themes?

actually started a thread about the themes here myself.

I first thought the Black bar was faulty, kept changing with different browsers, still like the other new layout changes & design apart from the new bar, the White design was best, bring it back Google!

I have no problem with the layout/design that I can get used to, but I do have visual acuity problems that black exacerbates.

As in Dwarf's quote, effort has been made to provide a number of skins to suit needs/personal preferences.

Unlike many other forums, where you have a very restrictive choice of skins (if any at all), John (z3r010) has made a great effort on his Forums to provide a number of skins to suit people's needs. It is not compulsive to use a particular one, as each user is free to pick and choose any of the skins which s/he finds most comfortable to use. If, however, you find a problem on one or more of the skins (missing functionallity), please let him know.
Mine happens to be the default, I like the contrast between the various page elements,

One thing that I have noticed is I hesitated to switch back to default after I used the three black themes; black, black wide, and pitch black.
I have a visual difficulty (contrast) with black themes, but there is a softness to these three.

That is probably the reason I do not like the beta black bar that google is trying out now on their search pages.

Your welcome!

I can understand change. But as in my thread title, you become comfortable with doing something, and someone goes and changes it on you.
