Bubbling screensaver originally on BeOS.

Overview

Since there seem to be so many ex-BeOS users moving to MacOS X, the developer decided to start bringing some of BeOS's screensavers along for the ride. "Foam" draws thousands of circles, each just touching the next, creating a beautiful "bubbles" effect (and a great demonstration of anti-aliased Quartz drawing).

What's new in Foam

Version 1.3.1: Better pseudorandom number generator; fixed bug in color preferences that could cause an infinite loop.

I never used the BeOS, but this is a lovely screensaver. Installs quite easily as well, and is about as configurable as could be. Nice work.

Reminds me of my first program made on Basic more than 20 years ago. I'm not sure that is a compliment or an insult.

It's designed to look old, it's based of the original screensaver.

cute little screensaver, i really liked it. it would be a lot better if the circles overlapped, not just falling next to each other.

Great little screen saver, very crisp and clean, and only takes about 5% of the CPU on my Powerbook 550 G4
