Blackle

Hey, did you know it costs less in megawatt energy hours to use a dark screen? My younger brother introduced me to Blackle.com (Powered by Google.com) just this week. He informed me of this energy saving tip. Being a lover of Mama Earth I jumped on board and switched my homepage to Blackle. Same information, dark screen. Click here if your're curious about seeing a pix of my handsome young brother, he looks like a young Randy Travis.

Upon reading the info provided by Blackle.com I thought I'd give darkening my blog a go. I try to be conscientious of my choices in order to preserve the Earth that I so love but I don't want to be a pest to those who do read my blog so the question is this:

1) Does it bother to you read against a dark background??
2) Will you consider using Blackle.com in an effort to conserve energy and therefore Mama Earth?

Here's the tag: Blackle.com...saving energy one search at a time (THEY TOLD ME TO SAY THAT!)

hello there! i switched mine to a darker background for these very reason. not sure where i got my info from (it was a search that lead me on a long reading of savings energy). no problems with the colors and reading for me.
welcome to the dark side, ha :D

Hi Tori~
Yeah, my brother is the one in the first pix. I think he is wearing a blue shirt.

Thanks for the thumbs up on the dark background.

I use the Carbon Neutral Search Engine which also offers black background search using Google Custom Search but offsets a minimum of 100g of CO2 per search, a nice extra little incentive.

Hi There!
Enjoying the snow?--lots and lots here to play in!

It doesn't bother me at all to read your text on the darker background.

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.

There are around 22 different versions of “black google” online. The best one I’ve found is www.cleanblack.com. Cleanblack is the only version that allows you to change the text colors of the google search results. Try it yourself by going to www.cleanblack.com/theme/
