Do websites use too much white?

I was showing my friend a mockup of a site design I had. He said, among other things, that it was too white.

It kind of makes me wonder...is white overused in websites? I mean, yeah, its the color of paper, and its neutral, so that's why its probably used so often, but it also produces a ton of glare and is not the most effective way of reading off a computer screen.

It seems that pretty much every web 2.0 site out there is stuck to a purely white color scheme. Do you think that over the next few years we will start to see more of a shift to colored backgrounds?

What other thoughts do you have on this?
