Google Shade

This is a weird one, Google is testing using a lighter font color for parts of the URLs displayed in the search ads in the search results. So the main domain is a solid dark font, but the parts around it is a lighter gray font.

I really do not like it, but it does not surprise me that Google would test this. These small subtle changes is something Google is known to try out, collect data on, and see if it matters for click through rates or not.
