I'm not sure how I got to this site, but this blog entry is the lamest I've ever come across.

The subtle change is for the better, but when this kind of news makes a headline on Google Blogoscoped, it would imply that Google hasn't done much of interest lately. At all.

we could calculate the extra power used to render this darker colour

Small subtle steps to world-domination! Thanks for observing them so carefully. keep up the good work!
BTW, I also noticed the position of my page in search-results was changed from #1 to #11 recently, do you think this could be related?

So Google changes the placement of those links that are supposed to be on the top left corner to the top of the search input, while leaving a huge white gap @ the top, which looks a bit odd. (And Google changes this back and forth – even after I clear the cookies, annoys me a lot.)

Also, I didn't know that there's a twitter account for this blog.

I noticed this too today and wondered since when that was showing if it was new. It was just showing on Google image search for me. Looks more like the old-style Google before they moved the navigation to the top left – see this screenshot from January 2007:

Personally, I'd prefer the top Nav bar (that is across multiple products) be the main products (eg. "Search Mail Reader..") and for the second line to be the type of the search (eg. "Web Images News...")

If you think about it, to the average Gmail user, having a link towards the top left of the page that says "Web" means nothing to them what so ever.
