The third beta of the macOS Catalina 10.15 software dropped earlier this week.
According to a nice find by Sydney-based Twitter user Jeremy Bank, the new beta has added a gorgeous new option to the Desktop & Screen Saver preference pane, entitled “Drift”.
Drift renders a colorful three-dimensional array of light trails, with each particle moving in a mesmerizing wave-like motion.
The screensaver is rendered by the GPU on-the-fly and features several different color theme options.
You can choose from a variety of hues including colors based off of your desktop wallpaper, as well as ‘Space Gray’, ‘Silver’ and the rainbow ‘Spectrum’.

MacDailyNews Take: Very nice. Kelp forest-like.
They should use the flyover screensavers that are used on AppleTV for the Mac as well.
You probably already know about the third party one, but if you don’t here is the link. Assuming you want something from Apple officially supported and I agree. https://github.com/JohnCoates/Aerial
And installing it screwed up my Mini. 47GB on the drive and it tells me I don’t have enough space to install. Stuck in an endless loop.
Yes, kelp. Because the corporation is killing off real kelp so it’s providing us with an AI replacement for our viewing pleasure; No snorkling, no scuba gear needed, no driving to the ocean with a polluting vehicle either. Next screensaver: A time lapse of pre-death reefs.
