It may seem like an insignificant change, but that bright yellow background was very annoying. Google looks much better with the correct white background.

Meanwhile, Firefox in Linux thinks that everything should be white except for the Google logo. At least it doesn't do it on my XP machine, that just has subtly blurry text since I upgraded to 52.9.0 (last version that works in Xp). I hate PCs!
Agreed. But now that I've seen it, back to for my search engine. It's a sweet update, and I'm sure with more buying updating keys IBrowse might even do what Odyssey does...and with flash being updated, it'll be even better. I like that I can log into banking and some other things now, too.

I just wish the "insanity" of almost all Business sites are going with the horrid Windows 10 look would end. It's actually cool to not see all the backgrounds and input forms are actually visible on some Web sites.
