Here is a screen saver that is really different. To start with, donít look for it where the rest of the screen savers are-matter of fact the only reason for going there is to turn off your current screen saver so it doesnít overpower A Web Dog. Then click the desktop shortcut, or the program off the start menu on the taskbar to run. 

This screen saver will surf around and entertain you with pictures from any URL on the internet. You can start out with the ones that are pre-loaded for you with the program, or put in your favorite URLís and truly customize this. 

You can choose a URL and run all the pictures on it, or go through and pick and choose your favorites. You can set up how long you want the computer to be idle, how long to display the picture, whether or not to eliminate the small pictures, change the size of the finished picture, and much more. If you have URLís that you want included-just drag them into Web Dogís window-it couldnít be easier! If there is a site with a bunch of pictures, and you only want, letís say, the animal pictures-there is a keyword function so you can select only the animal pictures without needing to go through all of it.

And as if they hadnít given you enough to get you started, thereís a button called more URL, which takes you to a large page of links to all kinds of pictures. So why donít you download this program and give it a try-the price canít be beat, and you will find a screen saver you wonít see anywhere else! [unless you tell someone else about the program!]
