Did Gmail Add Label Colors?

I have been running a greasemonkey script by Mihai Parparita for Gmail to add colors to your labels. It has not been working correctly, so I disabled the script, but I am still getting colored labels (although a bit different style).

Go to your settings, labels, and add #red or #blue or other color after a label name. (ex. Work #blue) and see if you get colored labels.

Not working for me (tried with #green)... have you tried to disable Greasemonkey?

However I don't think that Google implements label colors that way (by adding a string to the label) it's not too user-friendly, they will probably will add an ajax popup with a shiny color palette :)

No joy for me either. Tried capitalized and non-capitalized letters.

Nothing for me. I've got the script running at home but not at work. My labels are still plain here at work.

I'll try deleting the script entirely and see if it goes away.
