Save energy while surfing the web!

Today in the morning I received a message from Boris where he showed me a very interesting site with a great idea.

The name of the site is Blackle and it is a search engine based on Google that included a very simple concept: instead of using white background they use a black one. So what is so interesting here?

Well, you know that the screen is a very "energy expensive" device. It is expensiver when showing or displaying white colors, it just uses more energy. So if you browse on webs with dark backgrounds actually you are saving energy.

Thanks Boris!

I've already also put my desktop color to black, and I'll set my screensaver also to black color, to reduce the power usage.
