What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The color of your header bar is so similar to the chrome of my browser that I just spent a stupid amount of time trying to find where the search box was. I was ignoring it at the top because I didn't realize it was part of the page.

Have you tried contacting Google to change the color of their browser? :-) – LarsTech Feb 24 '12 at 17:51
The colour you suggested changing it to is identical to the theme I use in my browser. – Flexo Feb 24 '12 at 18:27
+1 for making my morning humorous. :) – animuson Feb 24 '12 at 18:47
Hey guys, I just wanted to point out that I was right and that Stack Exchange only took 2 years to realize it. Loving the new Black bar. :) – Jason Dec 6 '13 at 22:52

The bar's color is fine to me; Chrome's top bar has a bottom border to separate the UI from the viewport.

Plus, something won't be changed just to make it nice on one browser. It has to be a major change that would affect the layout/design on every browser.

I suggest that if you still find this to be a problem, you should consider installing a theme with darker colors.

EDIT: I misread your original post—no matter what browser you're on, the original point still stands. An entire design aspect won't be changed just to satisfy users of a single browser.

All I'm saying is, any form of Grey is going to blend in. – Jason Feb 24 '12 at 21:52
