Take back the web & the desktop!

Firefox ScreenSaver





To help to spread the SFx community and Mozilla Firefox at the same time, I've done a ScreenSaver that shows the Firefox downloads in a different way.

The idea behind is to reach 1 Billion downloads (now is a bit more of a quarter of billion) and show it as a full Firefox logo.
So far if you leave the screensaver running, it shows just 1/3 of the logo as only 1/3 of a billion has been downloaded as per today (11/Feb/2007) and this third of billion is slowly uncovered by squares (the data collected is transformed into squares, each square represents 200,000 downloads)...

well, better if you check it by yourself :)




salut!

this is the feedback from the people at the spreadfirefox community.
Is not good to have two links to download the screensaver. Only the one on this blog has a counter...

salut!

May you tell me what software you used to turn your flash into a screensaver?

I used MDM Zinc:

is a very nice piece of software; I do all my windows widget with it so is very flexible...
