Thinking about others might just be the answer to building the best experience for users, and it seems that Google doesn't forget the rule. If partial color blindness is something you are struggling with, then your experience on the Web is probably ruined by faded colors most of the time.
Let's be honest, web designers are likely to take into consideration what looks better rather than what's comfortable for everyone. Another obvious issue is that if you sit two partially color-blind people next to each other and show them the same website/image, they might have very different opinions on how comfortable those are for their eyes.
Google Accessibility released a Chrome extension called Color Enhancer which aims to overcome this issue. The concept behind it is very easy: the extension will apply a certain color filter to accommodate colors on a website to your vision. When you install the extension, you have to get through a quick calibration process to personalize the color filter to your vision, and you are all set.
