Comment (by coffee2code):

 It seems that the color of the placeholder text is generally set by the
 browser. It looks as though you are using Firefox, which does have a
 poorer contrast than under Webkit.

 How does this new CSS rule work for you?

 `#head-search input.text::-moz-placeholder { color: #ddd; }`

 Or let me know what color seems best. It should probably be a tad more
 subdued/darker than the text for text that is actually typed in.
