Blackle - Energy Saving Search

How do u save energy while searching?? Yeah obviously i am talking about the display energy of the monitor :)

Blackle does save the energy while searching. Blackle was created by HeapMedia

Blackle searches are powered by Google Custom Search. When enter any text for search, it will go via google only. Check the address bar, u will see a google.com address there.

Why did they come up with such an energy saving idea?

"Image displayed is primarily a function of the user's color settings and desktop graphics, as well as the color and size of open application windows; a given monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen."

How does it help?

When u make this page as your home page, every time you load the Internet browser a small amount of energy is saved.

After all, its a small step in saving energy.

There is another search engine like blackle called the Carbon Neutral Search Engine but it offsets a minimum of 100g of CO2 per search. The more searches the more carbon offset.

I prefer using Darkoogle http://www.darkoogle.com another black Google and is available in over 40 countries http://www.darkoogle.com/international

Best of all its got the 'similar page' option in the result page like the normal white Google. I use that a lot.
