Dark mode

It is available in dark mode, thus reducing screen brightness and energy consumption – especially in mobile use where OLED screens are most common.
Using dark mode can reduce your screen’s energy and is one of the more popular ways to provide a more sustainable web alternative in recent years. However, the actual effect of this is small, as only OLED displays save power while in dark mode. Unlike LCD or LED screens, OLED screens do not require energy to block light. More relevantly, however, the dark mode can often be more comfortable to read than a bright white screen.


Our site can activate a Low Data Mode which (1) reduces the resolution of images and provides them in black and white and (2) turns off features that require the download of a high amount of data and requests to external services, such as video streaming and maps dynamics.
Thanks to these measures, data transmission drops by around 80%, reducing loading times and energy consumption.
