Google Toolbar Black At Night

The sharp eyed amongst us may have noticed that the Google toolbar at the top of the screen now turns black after midnight and returns to normal in the morning.

First noticed this yesterday and thought my home page had been hijacked!

Google are beginning to annoy me as everytime I now switch IE9 on I am getting pestered by a bar which wants me to make Google my home page (Which it already is) and also a large advert wanting me to use Chrome. The way things are going I soon might not have much usable space on IE because of too many Google adverts. Come back Blackberry - all is forgiven :-))

Mine seems to be permanently black, regardless of the time of day.

I think it's Google tinkering again (or buggering about, depending on how annoyed you feel).

Mine went black at some point on Monday.

I use the Google seasons theme on my homepage, so that does change depending on the time of day and year, it's light & sunny at the moment, but if I change the time on the clock it will go dark...

You are right, it's still black, isn't life confusing enough without Google mucking about? :))

I don't have a Google toolbar. Such a carefree life that I lead...

Yes, I too have a black band at the top of the Google web page. It appeared only this morning. It wasn't there last night. Can't say I like it.

Hope they change it back to something more 'neutral' very soon.

Hurrah! That really does make the site sweeter to use.
