Chaos Crystal 2.0.001
The advantages of being portable
Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to alter the transparency for any running utility on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.
Simple looks and basic features
You are welcomed by a minimalistic window that offers only a few configuration settings to tinker with. The tool gives you the possibility to choose the window that you want to make it transparent by selecting it from a drop-down list.
It automatically detects the programs that are currently running on your computer, so you can easily choose the one that you want to process. Additionally, you may drag a small circle on the target utility.
Setting the transparency for the current utility proves to be a child’s play, as Chaos Crystal offers support for a built-in slider. You may opt for a total transparency up to complete opacity.
The lack of configurable settings makes it an ideal app for rookies, who don’t want to spend a lot of time tweaking many dedicated parameters. During our testing we have noticed that Chaos Crystal carries out a task quickly and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. As it would be expected from such a small utility, it remains light on system resources, so it doesn’t hamper computer performance, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.
All in all, Chaos Crystal offers a simple software solution when it comes to helping you set the desired transparency for any active application.
