    Display web pages as a screensaver (WinXP or Linux)

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a way to display HTML pages as a screensaver. I've think found a utility that *converts* html to a screensaver, but I want the screensaver to display the html from a URL live, so i can update the HTML where necessary. A windows app would be best, but I'm not averse to using Ubuntu if there's an easy way for a Linux newbie to set it up (i've recently install Ubuntu as a second OS on my home PC and am starting to work my way around it).

    I'm loathe to do a web search including the word "screensaver" as I think I'd be openly inviting myself to a malware infestation.

    Actually, just found one: http://www.softpedia.com/progDownloa...oad-35304.html

    Seems to do the job so far!

    How about a screensaver that displays RSS feeds? That way if you update the webpage the feeds get automatically updated.

    For example:

    http://www.istartedsomething.com/200...op-slideshows/
    http://rsssaver.com/

    Edit: Too late!
