Welcome to the Fractal eXtreme web site, home of the 64-bit capable multi-processor enabled fractal exploration program Fractal eXtreme.

While you're here, be sure to take a look in our gallery at some beautiful images created with Fractal eXtreme. Also, view our unique fractal zoom movies - the animation will amaze you.

Because fractals are curiously attractive, and because they are infinitely detailed, it can be quite enjoyable, and awe inspiring, to hunt around the Mandelbrot set, looking for a never before seen detail, a new theme, an attractive play of colours. After you've zoomed in a few dozen times, you can be pretty certain that nobody else has ever taken the exact route that you are taking, and that you are exploring untouched territory. Yet all of this detail comes from an equation so simple, it's trivial.

When choosing a program with which to explore fractals, it is important to select one that makes exploring effortless. The ideal fractal exploration program should give you enough features to let you do whatever you want, and should be fast enough to handle the computational complexity of fractal calculations. We think that if you give Fractal eXtreme a try, you will soon decide that Fractal eXtreme's unique combination of speed, power, and intuitive interface make it your best choice for exploring the wonders of fractals.

But don't take our word for it -- take Fractal eXtreme out for a free 15-day trial run.
