Beautiful Screen Savers

Sometimes after a long session of photo editing or working on the CSS and PHP on our websites I find that my eyes need a little beak. That's where screen savers are useful, although they aren't really necessary on modern displays, I think they can help blank your mind and rest your eyes. On my work computer I prefer the more abstract screen savers. They give my visual cortex something to work on without making me think about what I'm seeing.

I recently came across a developer who had a number of screen savers that I like but haven't seen in years (Swirl is very like, if not the actual saver that I used to use on my first color Mac, a IIvx). They are ideal for my purposes as they are both very pretty and colorful, but also not difficult to look at while thinking about something else.

They are about midway down here: WhiteBox Software

These are all Mac only, and most of them run perfectly on OS 10.6.
