듀얼모니터 모두에 각기다른 화면보호기를 띄우는데 독보적입니다. 광고도 없고 조작하는데 어려움도 전혀 없네요.

I have been using this extension for over 5 years, and it is still the source of so much joy in the house. There were a few months back in 2018 or 2019 where things didn't work as well as usual, but since then it has been rock solid. All of our desktops with dual monitors slowly cycle our photos on dual monitors, and sometimes we will just stand there for a few minutes, seeing photos we had long since forgotten.

There seems to be a bug where photos look garbled when running at Windows in portrait mode.
