Piclens Is The Coolest App I’ve Seen In Years
Almost taken straight from Minority Report, Piclens is the coolest web browser plug-in I’ve ever seen. Once installed (seamlessly on a Mac using Firefox 3.0.1), the feature allows you to browse photos and/or videos from a site and view them all in a huge panoramic view. Any site you visit that contains multiple images or videos is suitable (I think), and you simply click on the piclens icon on the upper-right corner of your browser to enter into the 3D immersive wall as Cooliris, the maker of Piclens, calls it (The Piclens icon lights up blue when it will work for a given site). As you scroll through the images, the file name appears below each image or video and you can play the clips right from the vastly improved panoramic view. Not only is it incredibly fun to play with, it greatly enhances the functionality of browsing through multiple clips and files. It is, by far, one of the coolest applications I’ve seen in years.
