SGen Desktop is the offline desktop version of SGen Pro. It runs entirely disconnected from the internet, and relies entirely on your Mac's built in processing power. This has it's pros and cons. Some of the pros are that it's cheaper, since you aren't paying for processor power from V0LT. It also dependent on your machine, so upgrading your machine will have a direct impact on its performance. A third benefit is that you don't have to rely on the internet to generate passwords. Everything can be done entirely offline! The final pro to SGen Desktop over SGen Pro is that there's no restrictions to how long your passwords can be, and how many you can generate. With SGen Pro, processing power has to be fairly divided among all users. With SGen Desktop on the other hand, you're free to use all the power available, which means theres no limit to what you can do.

Even though SGen Desktop may work very well for most people, there are a couple downfalls that may mean it isn't ideal for everyone. For staters, all the computing is done locally, which means for people using low powered devices, you may encounter slow downs when generating large strings. Second, is the added strain on your device. While this is insignificant to most users, if you plan to use SGen Desktop heavily while on the go, keep in mind that you'll burn through battery significantly faster using SGen Desktop than you will using SGen Pro.
