Top 5 Customized Google Search Engines with Black Background

Remember the hoax created by ecoIron that Google could save up to 3000 Megawatt-hours of energy by switching to black screen. There was also an explanation by the Google itself that why it is not feasible to show results in black screen background.

Well, the truth is – if you are using LCD screen or monitor then it hardly matters which background color you use. White, Black and even RGB colourful screens would be consuming same amount of energy for LCD. Despite of this fact, there are many custom search engines still prevailing that provide search results with black background. Here is the list of top 5:

1. Blackle : The most popular amongst all black screen search engines.

Even Google has made its homepage black for a day at earth hour event and Lights Out San Francisco. Other worth noticing custom search engines are Ranzooz – the antiglare engine and Ecocho – the carbon neutral engine.

All these search engines are based on Google Custom Search Engine and generates revenue by displaying ads along Google results. Even you can create your own search engine with different colors, fonts and settings at Google Custom Search.

“all these search engines are based on Google Custom Search Engine and generates revenue by displaying ads along Google results. Even you can create your own search engine with different colors, fonts and settings at Google Custom Search.”

you said “all these”, but as you can see black google on blogspot don’t use a costum search..is it allowed by google? and to put “google-adjective” in one’s domain name and homepage is allowed too? last question: can you put any google ads in the home page itself too? thank you

you are absolutely right francesco.

Considering the other blogspot sites that are using black Google like power-Google.blogspot.com , Google-black.blogspot.com and blackgle.blogspot.com only black-google.blogspot.com isn’t using custom search . Moreover, their UI is same as Google home page. Probably, a Google employee is responsible for this :)

And for you last question : Yes, you can place Google ads in home page too.

http://khojx.com is a very gud google custom search with black background

the best one is not inside, Wattsaver.eu, black google homepage.

I have been using Black Google Mobile at http://bGoog.com to get a better battery life on my smartphone and to reduce my data usage. On OLED based screens you can use over 4x less power having a black background instead of white! These sites are not mobile friendly and do not work correctly on my phone as they have white search results. There is more information on this at http://bGoog.com/about
