Black Google?

It’s black but it’s not evil Google. Blackle is a black version of Google’s predominantly white portal. Built on Google’s very own custom search engine technology, Blackle, is a little attempt on conserving energy.

“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.”

I must admit, its a pretty cool idea, and noble as well. Why don’t you give it a try, or better yet, make Blackle your default home page.

It uses a grey background with dark text which they might find easier to read. This still allows for some energy savings while providing an easier reading experience.
