The 'Fizzy Fractals' screen-saver generates and displays amazingly beautiful fractal images in random order. This program generates fractals that look as good as the stuff that comes from a expensive, space hog, the kind that takes up all of your pc capacity for hours, and this works in seconds! Now the next line I quoted cause I don't know what it means, but it sure sounds good! "The image points are also randomly generated, creating a 3D steroegram effect as the image is displayed." 

You can specify the time delay between the time the image is finished, and the time it clears to do another one, and there is a button that is called "use extra memory" By default it is unchecked, as when it is checked this program does take a lot of memory for a screen saver. Checking it will result in a slower, finer image. You can change how the screen is blanked before the next image, and you can decide which, any or all, of the 14 color schemes are used. The curve type determines what kind of fractal image is made, and the iteration button can be used to speed up or slow down the image generation. 

The only bad thing is that the program does not automatically install itself, [which meant I looked for it for 2 days-hey I'm spoiled!] You must manually copy the fizzyfractals.scr to the path C:\windows so don't forget this.

Whether you want it or not, you should check it out, it's gorgeous. And if you like it, the price is reasonable, very!
