Oh no, Jeff, tell me you didn't fall for it? Before I insert my foot into my mouth, let me first say that if you use a CRT monitor, use Blackle. Anyone with an LCD, however, the point is moot. Different studies have found as low as a 2W decrease for white-to-black up to 1W *increase*. But basically, it's a wash for LCD's.

I prefer using Darkoogle http://www.darkoogle.com another black Google and is available in over 40 countries http://www.darkoogle.com/international

Best of all its got the 'similar page' option in the result page like the normal white Google. I use that a lot.

There are around 25 different versions of “black google” online. The best one I’ve found is www.cleanblack.com. Cleanblack is the only version that allows you to change the text colors of the google search results. Try it yourself by going to www.cleanblack.com/theme/
