Google Shadows

Google seems to be heavily testing a new search results interface. Outlined search result snippets with a shadow effect. So the snippets that are boxes in, look a bit raised off the web page.

I am not sure if Google is launching this now, if it is rolling out to all searchers, or just a pretty big test. I personally cannot replicate this on my browsers or connections.

Here are screen shots from Twitter of what it looks like (click to enlarge them):

Do any of you see this shadow look on Google's search result snippets?
