Cooliris started off as a simple Firefox extension known as PicLens which enabled you to view online photos in a full screen slideshow. After some intensive development and a change of name, Cooliris is much more than just a simple slideshow, and now it also works with Internet Explorer
Cooliris for Internet Explorer not only lets you browse online photos from a variety of websites – including Google Images, Facebook, DeviantArt, Flickr, Picasa Web Albums and many, many others – but also online videos and photos stored on your local computer. Cooliris makes use of tags to display valuable context information for each photo, which comes in especially handy when working with Facebook albums.
Images are displayed in a sleek animated 3D wall from where you can browse them as thumbnails, open them up in a larger view or visit the source website when available. All movements are done with the mouse, either using the wheel or clicking on the photos.
Cooliris runs smoothly and features a really attractive design. On the downside, it can take a while to load photos, and can also make your computer really slow.
Cooliris lets you browse both online and offline photos in an impressive animated 3D gallery right on Internet Explorer.
