Ever so often, something comes along that is very practical while at the same time is a beauty to behold. Recently, I installed the new Firefox Addin “PicLens”, by CoolIris.
If you are a person that uses or browses Google Images, Flickr, Picasa, MySpace, or a wide range of other image browsers, installing PicLens gives you a new feature. Just click the “Play button” that shows up when you mouse over an image and prepare to be dazzled. What appears quickly is what is called a photowall, floating in 3D. Navigating and viewing the images is much faster than in a traditional browser.
I would not describe the interface as completely intuitive. Largely, but there was a few things I had to figure out as nothing is labeled. But a visual way of browsing images is fabulous. Love it!
