CRTs and other monitors that use "additive" colors (that is, systems that make white by shining all colors at maximum brightness) use more power to display some colors than others. Mark Ontkush has developed a low-wattage color-palette for use in web-applications that are used on these displays:
The hex codes are as follows:
#822007 (rusty red)
#b2bbc0 (blue grey)
#19472a (forest green)
What can you use it for? Any application that is displayed on a device that uses CRT, Plasma, or OLED technology. Any device where white costs money - handheld units, web sites, TV. Enjoy.
Mark Ontkush sez, "Jon Doucette is the guy that really invented it."

We have a theory about those throw blankets that are barely big enough to cover your legs. The only people who seem to make them or use them are grandmothers, and the blankets are only that small because Nana got bored halfway through the sewing job. Look, we’re sure she means well. But if you […]
Remember when the default state of your online presence was anonymity? That’s not so clear-cut anymore, and the worst part is you may not even know who is using your data or what they’re using it for. Small wonder that so many people are choosing to surf through virtual private networks. VPNs filter web access […]
