For some days now, I have the MSN Screen Saver installed on my PCs (Notebook, Media Center Edition and office PC) and I must admit it\'s exactly what I was looking for for a long time. It shows my very own photos randomly as well as it adds RSS news feeds on top, something absolutely handy if you want/have to stay up to date.
Anyway, I was \"slightly annoyed\" by MSN because I had to install the MSN Search Toolbar for Internet Explorer. As good as these Toolbars might be (doesn\'t matter from whom - Google, Yahoo! or MSN) I don\'t want to be forced to install it just because I want to run a different application, especially because the MSN Search Toolbar doesn\'t provides me any benefit because I\'m using Avant Browser instead of the Internet Explorer (even if Avant Browser is using the Internet Explorer OCX) which offers tabbed browsing and some other goodies for a long time already.

Great tips! I'm just happy that I was already using MSN Toolbar for search.

Nice work Arne! We've had a lot of feedback about forcing people to also install the MSN Toolbar. And we've listened to it. So this week we'll be releasing an updated version of the MSN Screen Saver which works with OR without the MSN Toolbar. It will be your choice if you want want to install the MSN Toolbar or not. Also, I read your comment about OPML support. Don't be surprised if that feature also gets added soon! wink
