Black is good

Black is good. Dark screen requires less energy as the screen will be predominantly black. White light requires more power from the display.

Hence it makes alot of sense for a black version of its home page. Sadly however if you are using a LCD display, it does not matter much.

Here it is – http://www.blackle.com

All thanks to EconIron blog entry.

  1. is blackle the black version of google, or completely unrelated?
    and isn’t it true that white on black makes one harder to concentrate?

  2. blackle is not related to google. Its done by Heap Media. Well white on black still provides a nice contrast good enough to discern letters on screen. Pity black on LCD not effective, just makes one feel good.
