This was my go-to screensaver for years, but, unfortunately, it is broken in Lion.

Unfortunately even the ChemicalBurn 1.1.4 update is still repeatedly crashing on launch under Lion. It's one of my favorites so this is disappointing.

I'd be happy to provide my crash logs if the developer wants them.


The 1.1.4 update has solved my Lion problems. Will test in Mountain Lion shortly.

17" iMac Dual Core running OSX 10.4.10.

Works perfectly for me.

Won't rate it, since I didn't care much about this screen saver. Found it boring.

But to each his own, it works fine and someone else with a MacIntel might enjoy it.

The screen saver itself is nice, but I got the endless spinning beach ball of death when I tried to unlock the display. Too bad.

Very cool screensaver. It is definitely not for everyone, but for those that love watching problems being sold, right on your screen.

I wish there was a way to change the graphics and / or colors.
