Novosibirsk, Russian Federation (PressExposure) August 31, 2009 -- GreenValidator.com is released to serve you online, free, with no signup. It is for people who care about being green not only by sorting waste but also by proper use of Internet since it became such a valuable part of our lives. But how the Internet, i.e. websites, can be 'green'?
GreenValidator.com is a new service for most Internet users and site-owners. It reveals the fact that website 'greenness' is influenced not only by 'green web-hosting', but also by site's structure, content and technologies used. This tool promotes best green practices of websites creation and helps reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions caused by both Internet servers and user's PC.
The system checks each website against a number of tests to calculate how much energy is required to load and maintain the website, whether its content is green, if you are encouraged to print out its pages and destroy forests, if it uses up-to-date technologies and so on. A complex algorithm calculates the final 'greendex' of given website that varies from 1 (very not green) to 10 (very green) - more answers for your questions you can find on the FAQ page.
The reason why you should use this green website validator carefully is that you are in risk to change your regular web browsing habits and life style to more green even if it was already green somewhere. It is easier to stay in a state of blissful ignorance but you would be hardly able to - thoughts of a new field of our lives needed improvement are to change your life position.
Though GreenValidator does not claim to be "scientifically-proven" source of information, it exists to make people more concerned about being green in web and making green websites. Another benefit is that you can successfully use it as an additional mean to promote your websites - all results are indexed by search engines and cross-posted to Twitter.
GreenValidator is a new and absolutely unique type of online services. However, its idea was in the air for last two years with such an approach for website improvement and for the next logical step in Green IT and environmentally friendly use of the Web.
