    A study at the American Association for Research of Online Networking found that users prefer websites that use blue colors over any other color

    I bet! Three quarters of the companies with which I've worked with have asked for sites based on shades of blue.

              I thought it was common knowledge that people prefered blue? I always assumed that was why women liked the color of my eyes.

                I suppose, but for all intensive purposes, it's within the blue hues.

                  Blue is nice, however a nice black and white theme catches my eye just as well...however...the color of the website does not make me want to buy from them any more than any other business.

                  If they offer a quality product or service, I honestly don't care if they have a text-based website .

                      I'm not sure if this is exactly true, it sounds like another one of those half-arsed researches. Blue is without doubt the most popular colour, but does that absolutely mean that blue websites are therefore the most popular? I don't know, I'm just reminding people that they shouldn't believe every story they read like this.

                          How does blue = flowery?

                          What about dark blue sites?

                              Heh, I love themes like that too. I'm working on a skin like that for my RP site.

                              Though I admit, I love blue... which is why my other site will be dark blue.
