    A Google based search engine that claims to save electricity? Pretty cool concept I think.

    I'm setting them to my homepage just because I like the black background, and I like Google.

    Do you think it works? Do you have an LCD or CRT monitor? Do you like computers? :naughty:

    I think I read that looking at a black site with an lcd doesnt do shit for power consumption because the backlight is still on just as much as if it were a white page.

    I think it does make a difference with CRTs, but so many people are using lcds now anyway
