Piclens Let's You Browse in Style

Cool Download: Piclens

Browsing through photos and videos online just got a heck of a lot prettier with Piclens! This sweet download — that's been brought to us by another fave download of mine, Cooliris — allows you to gloss over thousands of photos from sites like Flickr, Photobucket, and Google Images, in a classy and sleek 3D slideshow. And what's better, the load times are nearly diminished since your slideshow is a virtual wall of thumbnails . . . allowing you to see more per square inch of your screen.

Piclens is friendly with your Safari, Firefox, IE, and Flock browsers, so all you have to do is select your browser of choice, and hit "download." Once you're all set up, hitting the little blue "play" button on a photo will launch Piclens and you'll be browsing more efficiently in no time.
