Blackle:An eco-friendly Google


Blackle is a web front-end to the Google search engine, that we have all come to know and love. The aim of Blackle is to help the thousands of users from around the world save on energy. How does it do this? Here's a simple explanation from the Blackle website:
Blackle saves energy because the screen is predominantly black. A given monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen.

If you use a CRT monitor (or a large plasma screen), you would save a lot from using Blackle instead of the Google interface. With an LCD panel, you would be able to cut down battery usage by a bit.

Anyway, check out Blackle at:
