Desksaver Plus is a neat widget interface that allows screensavers to be run right on your desktop. Select from any standard screensaver on your computer - even RSS feeds. A CPU percentage indicator shows whether or not the screensaver is bogging down your system.

Cool idea. I didn't run screensaver as desktop background earlier because I have to run other app and change settings. Now I can do it right from Dashboard. Now my screensavers are back in action! Thank you developer for creating such a handy widget. :)

Works great. I really like having the CPU percentage display. The only thing I would request is having a button to open the system preferences right from the widget.

Very nice.

I've used several little applications to set my screensaver as an animated background (in conjunction with SetAlphaValue to create translucent windows for that Windows-pundit 'ooh aah' response).

Having a screensaver on your desktop is very impractical from a usability point of view but it's very impressive. This widget is handier than stand-alone applications and it's always no further than a keypress away.

Runs fine on my system.

Good work!
