Here's the real screenshot from my Chrome 17 Canary build on Windows 7.

See how much darker ChromeBama is getting?

No, it's not Mr Incognito, it's the icon you get when you select a multi profile user.

Just noticed, the Superhero Douchebag Guy, The one with the blue eye mask is also getting the "Indian" Treatment...

I think they're usually yellow in colour so that makes sense.

Stil, there's been no official word from Google about this. Clearly, they had meetings and some changed the hue of those images and they are continuing to get darker in newer builds.
