Cooliris 1.8 gains Safari 3.1 compatibility

Cooliris 1.8 update

Cooliris has released an update to its self-titled browser extension, bringing it to v1.8. Formerly known as PicLens, the plug-in lets users access more elaborate, full-screen galleries of images and videos on a website, presented in a "3D Wall" view that lets users rapidly scroll through dozens or hundreds of images. A site must be Cooliris-enabled for the technology to work, but some supporting sites include Google, YouTube and Facebook.

Critical to v1.8 is support for Safari 3.1, allowing Mac users to access the plug-in from their built-in browser. The company has additionally implemented a means of sharing Cooliris galleries with people missing the plug-in, and a "Quick and Simple" site-enabling scheme, intended for developers. This method takes approximately 10 minutes, but relies on an automatic scan and does not work with videos. Cooliris for Safari is a free download.

    It's great

    I can not get my site to upload.

    I do love this interface. I am able to view sites...kind of. I can't get the Facebook to work, but I did get youtube to work flawlessly.
