PicLens 1.6 for Firefox

CoolIris has released v1.6 of PicLens, its plug-in for various web browsers. The add-on enables more advanced, full-screen viewing of images on the web, operating similarly to the filmstrip viewer in Aperture; to activate it, users simply click on an icon that appears over images on select websites. Some compatible sites include Google Image Search, Flickr, Picasa, Hi5, Facebook and Photobucket.

New to v1.6 is the "3D Wall," a feature which mimics Cover Flow by letting users click and slide their way through hundreds of thumbnails; as people mouse over them, a slightly larger version appears as a preview. It is now also possible to search for images within PicLens, and the list of compatible sites has been expanded to include DeviantArt, MySpace and others. PicLens is a free download; v1.6 is currently only available for Mozilla Firefox however, and Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later is required.
