    Save energy by using the Black version of Google - Black Query - Energy Saving Search

    The Black Version of Google - BlackQuery saves energy because predominantly, the major portion of the screen is black.
    Research reveals that a given monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen.
    In December 2011 a blog post titled "Black Google Would Save 750 Megawatt-hours an Year" proposed the theory that a black version of the Google would save a large chunk of energy due to the popularity of Google search engine.
    Use BlackQuery and save energy with each search. Let’s join hands to save our planet, our mother earth.
    Kindly make BlackQuery your default search engine and set is as your browser's home page.

    Not really.

    This is valid only for CRTs (and OLEDs).

    LCDs are back-lit when they're on, so no power savings
