This Thanksgiving season, add an inspirational message or holiday sentiment on the family computer by downloading and installing these free family-friendly computer screensavers.
Screensavers were originally intended to prevent phosphor burn-in, or screen burn, on CRT computer monitors. With current monitors, screen burn is not as problematic as it was once. Today, screensavers are used for security purposes, product or business promotion and for enjoyment and entertainment.
