Smoother Desktop Drawing

When you view your desktop, you might notice a slight flicker when it's drawn. If you've got the Active Desktop on, you'll probably notice an even more pronounced flicker.

That's because it takes several steps to draw the desktop and all of them are drawn directly to the screen on top of one another. Drawing like that leads to flicker which can cause eye strain.

Say 'hello' to smoother desktop drawing with UIFriend. UIFriend's double buffering system causes the desktop to first draw into an off-screen buffer. Then after the final result is ready, it is copied to your screen.

The result is smoother drawing and reduced flicker that your eyes will thank you for.

Transparent Icon Text Backgrounds

If you've got unsightly blocks of color around the text of your desktop icons, UIFriend can help. UIFriend will turn those blocks of color transparent, allowing the beauty and aesthetics of your wallpaper to shine through.  (See It)

UIFriend's efficiency means there's a minimum effect on system performance. If the desktop is idle, then UIFriend isn't wasting system resources providing this feature.
