Why are links being displayed in black on Google?

Did someone change a setting or something? I’ve only seen blue links for Google search results before, but they are suddenly showing up as black.
It was Google running a test of a new design. They test stuff like this out all the time, but only a small portion of users usually see it, and of that small portion only some of them even notice. This design change just happened to be more easily noticed than most of them.

There was a PC World article about it a few days ago, if you want to read a little more about it.
