OK, let's face it. The days are long since gone when anybody really needed screen savers to save their computer screen from the dreaded 'burn in' or 'ghost image'. Macintosh systems shut the monitor off to save energy and improve screen life, and use other techniques to prevent 'burn in' on CRT systems. But screen savers are loads of fun, and if one pops up on your screen in an idle moment, or when the phone rings and you take your hands off the keyboard, they can be a pleasant distraction.
Version 1.2 features unspecified improvements and bug fixes.
AWESOME celebration of Mac's fading, moving graphical abilities. Not too resource intensive on my G3 iBook (OS 10.1 Puma).
There are TOO MANY pay screen savers, unworking or barely working OS 9 and before screensavers, and savers that are no longer avaialble.
iX Screen Effects work and you get a LOT for your download.
Falling Blocks, Matrix, and bad fireworks are a few of the choices. These are NOT tired old slide shows. They are celebrations of the hardware Apple gave you!
You can pick and choose what you want to install of them.
They work and they are fun. Mac needs more programmers like illuminex. Thank you!!!
P.S. illiuminex did not pay me to write this. Why would they for free software? I am just way too sick of Mac users being underappreciated and undervalued by programmers in the world. Thank you, again, Illuminex for treating us right.
Fireworks was Horrible. But so what. There are a lot of screensavers to choose from. AND they are highly configurable. That's NOT something you can say of all screensavers.
