PicLens: great web browser plugin

PicLens is the most amazing thing I’ve experienced lately. It is a plugin that lets you turn a simple photostream into an interactive module to browse images. It is really sad that there are no real screenshots available, but trust me. It is the bomb. It is supported by the major browsers, although it works best in firefox. If your lucky enough to an apple laptop with 2-finger scrolling enabled trackpad then you’re in for a treat.

Basically what the plugin does is project the pictures from flickr, deviantart, google, facebook, … onto a wall which you can zoom in on, turn left and right or simply lay back and enjoy a slideshow. It’s never been been more fun to look for inspiration. Let me know what you think about it.

  1. piclens is awesome! i’ve been usin it for a while

  2. I use it with Firefox on Mac OS X but unfortunately it does not work with the latest Safari Version (which I prefer to FF). You are perfectly right that it is amazing.

  3. It’s a shame it won’t work with Safari, or the Firefox 3 beta for that matter. They’ve just released an update though so there’s hope that it will work some day in these browsers. I am kind of torn between S and FF to be honest. S is faster, but it can’t compete in terms of plugins or tab browsing.
