Comparing the Readability of Two Google Blogs

Let’s compare the readability of two Google blogs. On the right, a recent item from Google’s main blog, which has converted to Google’s new low readability design. On the left, a recent entry from the Google Security Blog, which is currently still using the traditional high-readability design.

The differences are obvious, and the low contrast on the right is especially bad for persons with aging vision (this degrading of vision typically begins around age 18, by the way). Both samples are at the same (default) zoom level.

Google is failing at accessibility in major ways, and this is just one example.
