Get Those Flying Toasters and Spotlight in Your Browser!

I don't know what it is about After Dark screensavers, but it's clear we can't get enough. In 2002, we were excited about it coming to OS X. Last year, I noted that After Dark (and Rose 2.0) had been resurrected as freeware apps. Now we can enjoy After Dark in our browsers, so celebrate!

After Dark Flying Toasters in Your Browser

Bryan Braun has released After Dark in CSS, reproductions of the After Dark screensavers powered by the magic of modern CSS right in your browser. In addition to the examples I showed here, there's Fish, Globe, Hard Rain, Bouncing Ball, Warp, Messages, Messages 2, Fade Out, Logo, Rainstorm, and the Randomizer, too.

It's free and a few taps away, so have a blast from the past and step back to 1989.
