PicLens – Browser Plugin


With the richness of the web these days wouldn’t it be nice to search for stuff with a better looking user interface? Stop imagining and start using!

I’ve just come across PicLens by cooliris which is a browser plugin for IE, FireFox and Safari that gives you an immersive view of images, photos and videos on various websites like Google, YouTube, Amazon and more.

Searching content providers is easy

It’s a small plugin, less than 2MB in size and once loaded pick your favourite content provider, type in your search as above and get offered a wonderful fully-interactive wall of images.

If you’re an avid photographer and want to enable PicLens for your own website/blog they even show you how in their Webmaster’s Guide and PicLens Lite.

And, it’s FREE – what are you waiting for?

  4. Hi Deems,

    It’s Luna again from Cooliris. I wanted to let you know that, coming on the heels of our recent release for Safari, we’ve just added some new features on Cooliris that will further enhance the web browsing experience!

    Today, we are especially excited to announce two major developments. First, we are pleased to introduce a greatly enhanced shopping feature. You can now shop online through the sleek and time-saving Cooliris interface on Amazon, Macy’s, eLuxury, Beauty.com, Nordstrom, Apple iTunes, Wal-Mart, KB Toys and more!

    We are also thrilled to announce a new partnership with Kodak Gallery, the largest photo sharing community on the web. They are now officially enabled with Cooliris so you can enjoy your photos on Kodak Gallery in Cooliris style. Sharing and browsing photos on Kodak Gallery just became easier and more visually appealing for everyone!

    We hope you and your readers enjoy the latest additions to our product. As always, I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have and I look forward to hearing your feedback.

    All the best,
    Luna and The Cooliris Team
