The screen saver "Circles" randomly spawns various objects on the screen. These objects age for a while and leave. Objects include Circles, Jelloballs, Rectangles, Polygons, Meshed Polygons, Twirlers and Rainbow Twirlers. The user may configure object behavior along with spawn rate and screensaver behavior. Benchmarking tools aid the user in fine-tuning for various screen and computer capabilities.
