Google Black

A year ago, we covered how Google is testing a black UI test in the search results. We've seen the test reported to us several times over the year since then. But the test seemed to have come up a more often in the past weekend.

Both @digitalwhat and @suzukik notified me of noticing the new black looking Google user interface on the mobile search results.

Here is a screen shot showing one of the search results in all black and white:

Here is what it looks like for the rest of us:

Google Normal Ui

In many of these tests, Google places a globe icon near the URL, which we've seen them do before.

I am not a fan of this black and white interface.
