Reflections On PicLens

July 10, 2008

PicLens is a visualization extension for Firefox…


Piclens for Firefox

It’s also one of the coolest looking things this side of a Mac. Once you’ve installed it, you can click the Piclens icon in the top right hand corner of the browser at any time and search for images on Google, Flickr or Photobucket. You can also search Youtube for video.

The end result is an instant 3D swooshy-swirly picture/video viewer interface. It’s as easy to use as any professionally-produced alternative and looks as good as, if not better than Vista’s built-in picture viewer. And it’s free of course.

There are a few sites which support Piclens; as well as the aforementioned Google Image Search, Youtube, Flickr and Photobucket, you’ll find support on Facebook and WordPress, among others. Browsing Facebook photos in Piclens is much more convenient and useful than Facebook’s own clunky photo album system.
