Search engines, environmental

I had a look at Blackle and it is quite easy on the eyes with its (apparently) energy-saving black background. I wonder if, with GooglePreview [a Mozilla add-on that inserts website previews into the search] these black-background search engines still save as much energy? They may need to finesse their algorithyms to take into consideration the often white backgrounds of these previews.

I think saving energy with the software we use and the websites we visit is an interesting idea that deserves more investigation. Especially since an older Google Blog posting suggests that they have tested Blackle and have not found it to save energy.

Thank you to AltSearchEngines for your posting on this.
