Double the screensavers, double the fun. Right? That's the proposition offered by FoxSaver, a unique extension for the Mozilla Firefox Web browser that separates the application into its own, separate display platform from your desktop. That's a bit of a tongue-twister, so let me spell this out: FoxSaver, as suggested by the name, is an add-on that builds a separate screensaver into your browsing session.
You can use the add-on to pull images from a huge online gallery of pre-submitted pictures (akin to Flickr). If you're not into the random element, you can also set up FoxSaver to use images from a number of folders on your local hard drive or specific RSS feeds that you've already set up. The add-on will even display the contents of Web pages during the animated screensaver process--take that, data-driven RSS feeds.
Type "screensaver" into a Web search box - go ahead, I dare you. What you'll come across is a number of scamming, ad-filled, useless sites that care more about lining their own pockets with revenue than actually delivering you the goodies you want for sprucing up the look of your system's display. I can't help you much there. The appeal of a particular screensaver is, after all, in the eyes of its beholder. You might like flying toasters; I might like ports of OSX screensavers. There's little point in me trying to push my tastes on you via some freeware roundup.
That said, there are a number of interesting applications that can help you better manage your display. Regardless of whichever screensaver you choose to use--including none--the freeware tools listed below will let you best manipulate your screen to your liking. Enhance your daily computer use with increased energy-savings or prevent annoying interruptions to your media-watching, amongst other tricks. And, yes, you'll even be able to turn your screensaver on and off at a whim...
