I don't know about you, but when I choose a screensaver, I want something that looks good and is original. Nothing like the default ones that come in my computer.

Strands is a pretty cool screensaver which shows a flow of glowing lines weaving on your screen. The lines change color every few seconds, going from red to yellow, green, or many other colors.

You'll need at least a 16MB 3d card to be able to enjoy the screensaver without any slowdowns. Obviously, if you stare at it too long you'll notice that Strands does get a bit repetitive, but that is the case with most screensavers you'll find.

Installing the screensaver is a fairly easy process. Simply extract the file from the archive and save it in a safe place where it doesn't risk being deleted.

Then simply go to your computer's settings and select it as you would any normal screensaver.

Strands may not work properly with all graphics cards or system configurations as it still is in beta.

Strands is a screensaver that shows a weave of glowing, flexing lines. Strands for Windows is a DirectX port of the original OpenGL version. It is presently in beta status due to a lack of thorough testing on a suitable range of operating systems, graphics cards, and monitor configurations.
