This screensaver renders a fairly realistic water effect over your desktop, showing it distorted through the wavy surface of the water as raindrops fall on the surface.
It uses quite a bit of CPU power. There are configuration options to vary the accuracy of the simulation to fit the processing power available.
Note: If you experience a black screen when activating the screensaver, this is because of a Mac OS X security feature. If your computer is set to ask for a password after disabling the screensaver, the screensaver is also denied access to the desktop. To fix this, either disable the password, or select an image file to use as background instead of the desktop.

New in v1.4:
