Blackle

Blackle is the black version of Google. It is another important developement in internet world, hope we all would appreciate it and use it. A few months ago, TreeHugger Mark Ontkush wrote a post on his blog EcoIron titled Black Google Would Save 750 Megawatt-hours a Year.

An all white web page uses about 74 watts to display, while an all black page uses only 59 watts. Google, which has a white background and gets about 200 million queries a day, could reduce global energy use by 750 Megawatt-hours a year by simply changing the color of its homepage to black.
In response to this post a black version of Google emerged called www.blackle. com acccording to Blackle’s homepage at publication time, 257,652.988 Watt hours have been saved by.

Nice idea! But how does the search measure up? Very well indeed. Give it a whirl yourself and start saving energy one search at a time. Recommend you all to use this as your home page or default search engine. Kindly pass this on to people you know and save energy.
