Summary
Analyze keywords

A screen saver for Microsoft Edge browser. When your computer is idle, the screen saver will decorate your screen and interior with a beautiful and interesting background, protect your sensitive information left on a screen from prying eyes, and in some cases reduce display degradation.

Includes a large set of scenes on various themes, including nature, forest, sea, animals, fireplace, space, abstractions, bouncing DVD logo, “The Matrix” and others. Some scenes are generated programmatically while the screensaver is running, others use video recordings. Also, as a screensaver, you can use any web pages and photos.

Works on any operating system that runs the browser, be it Windows, macOS, Linux or ChromeOS.

An Internet connection is required to play back scenes with video.

If you specify a web page (URL) from the YouTube website as a screen saver, it will open in a new tab in normal mode, and not in full screen like all other screensavers. This is due to technical features of the YouTube site.

If you use a photo (file) from your local disk as a screen saver, then the size of this photo (file) should not exceed 10 MB. This is the technical requirement of the browser.

The extension uses, among other things, the following assets, available for use under free licenses: https://codepen.io/bts/pen/BygMzB / David Zakrzewski / MIT https://codepen.io/yashbhardwaj/pen/QWKKgb / Yash Bhardwaj / MIT
