Focus Screensaver Blurs Your Desktop

Posted by Rich On November - 5 - 2008

A good friend, Ellarby shared this screensaver with me this morning and I love it. The screensaver is simple and simply blurs your screen. You can change the blur intensity and turn on grayscale. Grab yourself a copy here.

I’ve tested this in Vista and Windows Server 2008. I haven’t tested this in Windows XP yet, can anyone confirm this works? Works with Windows XP (SP3) Thanks JazzMastaJim
