Desktop Saver lets you run just about any screensaver as your desktop wallpaper.

There are many beautiful screensavers available for Mac OS X. However, screensavers are usually only activated when you're away from your computer. With the Desktop Saver application, you can run almost any screensaver live on your desktop. This lets you enjoy your screensavers while using your computer.

We find the Desktop Saver works best with tranquil screensavers such as the Paper Pilots screensaver (http://www.paperpilots.com).

    Major Features

  • The Desktop Saver does not interfere with the real screensaver (System Preferences).
  • The application lets you run any screensaver on your desktop, not just the screensaver selected in the System Preferences.
  • Hot-spots will still activate the screensaver while Desktop Saver is running.
  • Multi-monitor support lets you run a different screensaver on each monitor's desktop.
