Google is testing black hyperlinks in Search

Google is testing a new design tweak for Google Search. Some users have started seeing links for search results show up as black instead of the blue we're used to.

While this may seem like a minor change, blue links on white backgrounds has been a Google design staple for years. Google could be testing theories that certain colors compel people to click on search results more than others, or they could simply be looking for a change to spruce their design up a bit.
