-{{features:mandanim.gif }}XaoS isn't like most fractal programs, where you draw a little rectangle around the area you are interested in and wait for the image to redraw.  Instead, you point at the area you are interested in and hold down the button to zoom into the fractal in one fluid, continuous motion.  It's like you're flying into the fractal.  Gone too far?  No problem! Hold down the right button to zoom back out.  Want to line up the perfect shot?  Just hold down the middle button and drag and drop to reposition the image.  This type of freedom really gives you a much better "feel" for the fractal than any static fractal program, not to mention that it's fun.+{{features:mandanim.gif }}XaoS isn't like most fractal programs, where you draw a little rectangle around the area you are interested in and wait for the image to redraw.  Instead, you point at the area you are interested in and hold down the button to zoom into the fractal in one fluid, continuous motion.  It's like you're flying into the fractal.  Gone too far?  No problem!

XaoS's zooming algorithm is fast, even if your computer isn't. XaoS was developed to perform well way back in the days of the 486, so today, almost any computer will give you excellent, smooth rendering at a high frame rate. Advanced optimizations like boundary detection, solid guessing, periodicity checking, and unrolled calculation loops are utilized for the highest possible speed. SMP is also supported to take advantage of today's multiprocessor machines. XaoS's zooming algorithm is fast, even if your computer isn't.
