Mac Screensavers: Hills, Hyperscape, Microcosm, Anèmona, Solar Winds, Flocks Updated
No money for a new Mac or even more RAM? Spruce up your old Mac with this fresh n’ tasty batch of free Mac screensavers — updated eye candy from a who’s who of Mac screensaver developers.
First up is an OS X port of Terence M. Welsh’s OpenGL screensaver for Windows. Solar Winds is a cool Mac screensaver that is excellent in every way — Retina ready, GateKeeper compatible — but one.
Mac screensaver maestro Seiryu has updated Hills, Hyperspace and Microcosm for OS X 10.6 or later. And, good news, all three are OS X Mavericks compatible, though Hills can be a little glitchy (doesn’t crash on my 2007 iMac).
Oriol Ferrer Mesià has updated his Anèmona, a particle-based screensaver based on LiquidMac, for OS X 10.8 and later.
Stéphane Sudre’s Flocks is now OS X 10.6 ready, but doesn’t run on OS X Mavericks. For what it’s worth, he catalogs a large number of Mac screensavers, more than a dozen, which he says in the comments section below are all (save one) Mavericks compatible — your mileage could vary.
Of the above Mac screensavers, Hyperspace is easily my favorite — rich, smooth and trippy graphics…
What’s your take?
