An all white web page uses about 74 watts to display, while an all black page uses only 59 watts. I thought I would do a little math and see what could be saved by moving a high volume site to the black format.

Take at look at Google, who gets about 200 million queries a day. Let's assume each query is displayed for about 10 seconds; that means Google is running for about 550,000 hours every day on some desktop. Assuming that users run Google in full screen mode, the shift to a black background [on a CRT monitor! mjo] will save a total of 15 (74-59) watts.
That turns into a global savings of 8.3 Megawatt-hours per day, or about 3000 Megawatt-hours a year. Now take into account that about 25 percent of the monitors in the world are CRTs, and at 10 cents a kilowatt-hour, that's $75,000 , a goodly amount of energy and dollars for changing a few color codes.
Therefore Bloogle is an effort to save this energy by using the exact same search engine powered by google but using a black background. Thus using this Black google helps save energy in this time of energy scarcity.

Please use Bloogle as your home page and help promote the site to make the world a greener place for everyone.

I don't think it works like that. Wouldn't the energy coming from the outlet be constant, no matter what it is you're doing with it?

If you can read this, go change to UG black.

If you can read this, good job using UG black.



On topic: It looks interesting. But there's a reason why Google is popular. If Google were to switch to black, then that would save us more energy than Bloogle, since more people use Google anyway.

UG Classic not only kicks ass, but it's also speeding up the extinction rate of the Giant Panda and melting of the ice caps. Fuck yea Classic!
