For those worried with energy consumption and all its downsides...
When your screen is white, either as an empty word page, or a Google page, your
computer consumes 74 watts, and when its black it consumes only 59 watts.
So a man named Mark Ontkush wrote an article about the energy saving that would
be achieved if Google had a black screen.
Taking in account the huge number of page views, according to his calculations,
750 mega watts/hour per year would be saved.

In response to this article Google created a black version of its search
engine, called Blackle, with the exact same functions as the white version,
but with a lower energy consumption, check it out.

volgens de site zelf lijkt het niet gemaakt te zijn door google zelf maar door mensen die de google custom search functionaliteit hebben gebruikt

Het bestaat heel lang en dezelfde papers verschenen al tijdens Windows 95, wanneer je je desktop zwart zou maken.

Het is trouwens Mega watt*hour, niet /hour.
