For the first time in the better part of a year (and the first time since I made the jump to Windows 8.1) I loaded up Google Chrome to have a play with a few extensions. To my annoyance the screen was a horrible shade of pink, which made the tab headings almost illegible.
A search for the cause revealed that it was most likely a stereoscopic 3D setting – which was not applicable to my video card. At any rate, the purported solutions involved turning off functions of the video card that should not need to be switched off. A stop-gap perhaps, but not a fix. I thought there would have to be a better way, and there was.
Solution: Long story short, if Google Chrome looks pink (and you have an Nvidia video card), then update your nvidia driver.
