Energy-saving Google black screen version - Blackle

Due to a demand from energy conscious users, Google have created a new black screen version of their site called Blackle on www.blackle.com. If everybody used it instead of the white version, it is estimated that 750 mega watts/hour per year would be saved.

    There is also the Carbon Neutral Search Engine it uses Google Custom Search but offsets a minimum of 100g of CO2 per search, saving the environment

    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 19 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/
