Get rounded corners back on your Mac’s screen

Displaperture rounded screen corners mac

Prior to Mac OS X 10.5, your Mac’s desktop had rounded screen corners. Now you can bring those smooth rounded corners back with Displaperture (say that ten times fast). The developer jokingly notes “enjoy CRT nostalgia” but I think the rounded corners are actually kind of nice looking with the rest of the Mac OS X GUI.

The extent of the rounding is adjustable, from a pleasant minor curve to an utterly ridiculous obstructionist oval that decimates your screen real estate.

If you miss the rounded corners on your Mac display, check out Displaperture.

It’s kind of a fun tool particularly if you’re nostalgic for rounded corners rather than the sheer lines of LCD displays. But is it useful? Well, that’s up to you to decide.

Do keep in mind modern Macs have some rounding on the bottom corners….

    you idiot.

    I used Macs for years, and never once missed the few tiny pixels in the corners (save for hypercard stacks which hide the menubar)
