For those of you who think in pictures, have I got a treat for you. Cooliris (ver. 1.10) is a free browser plug-in that lets you search the web visually.
Looking for an image on Google, Yahoo, Flickr, Picasa, deviantArt or video clip on YouTube? It all can be viewed on a gorgeous 3-D wall that in most cases seems to go on forever. After installing, your browser will be equipped with an icon that launches this 3D wall in full screen mode. You can also browse by category (new, entertainment, shopping, etc.) all within the same window.
But it doesn’t stop there – you can view your iPhoto library or any other folder of images on your computer in Cooliris. Controlling the wall with the scroll ball on your mouse is not only very fluid, but also pretty dang fun too.
Even cooler – its available for iPhone. The recent update (ver. 1.4) adds Twitter integration and with the creation of a Cooliris account, the ability to save favorites, subscribe via RSS and much more. As Macworld put it in this article, “Cover Flow for Web browsers with a little Quick Look thrown in for good measure? Yep, that’s the gist.”
Give it a look, words can’t describe the cool factor here. And that’s the point – no one reads words anyway, right?
