It’s after a long time, i am writing about smashingfeeds. Well, there is a major site redesigning happened last week. You probably have noticed the new look. It’s basically related to a black background.
Inspired by earth day, i thought to change the back ground color to black to save some amount of energy and this way i can be the part of energy saving efforts as saving energy is equivalent to generating new energy.
"Image displayed is primarily a function of the user's color settings and desktop graphics, as well as the color and size of open application windows; a given monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen." Roberson et al, 2002
This inspired me to change the background color of this website to black from white. Each time user visit this site, this new site design will help to save some amount of energy.
