CoolIris replaces PicLens!

CoolIris was released to replace PicLens and there are some great new features. You can now launch it on any website even if the website is not compatible. The photos and videos from the website won't be displayed of course, but a new "Discover" menu now lets you browse through photos from the Web. You can also search Flickr, YouTube, Google Images and many other websites directly from CoolIris. You can get CoolIris by updating PicLens through Firefox plugin updates or downloading the install here from MacUpdate.

I tried this plug-in out just about a week ago or so. I really liked it for about two days, then Safari started acting up really bad (a whole lot of "unexpectedly had to shut down", keyboard shortcuts weren't working, etc.). I put up with that for about another day, then decided to clear CoolIris off my computer, and Safari went back to normal.

So yeah, if they could drop the severely combative operation glitches, it's a great little program. :)

I agree with aaron. Had to remove after two days. Doesn't play nice with Safari.

I could never get it to work with Safari. Stick with the Firefox version.

Well, it works fine on my Safari. Perhaps it's because I'm using 10.4 Tiger, and you guys are using Leopard?
I still wish/haven't bothered to find/ that there are keyboard shortcuts for piclens yet. I use it alot though (both the wall and the slideshow).

Thanks so much for posting about us! We sincerely appreciate it.

I also wanted to let you know that we've got some exciting news to announce from Cooliris! Now you can experience Cooliris anywhere and anytime by navigating the mobile web with our brand new iPhone App. Cooliris for the iPhone is the fastest way to browse media-rich web content on the go.

Searching the Web with the Cooliris iPhone app displays your results in the same intuitive, easy-to-navigate manner you've come to expect from the Cooliris web client. The Cooliris iPhone app overcomes the traditional limitations of mobile internet browsing by coupling the breezy, open-ended feel of the 3D Wall with the streamlined hands-on interface of the iPhone touchscreen.

Cooliris for the iPhone brings you the news and articles relevant to you from across the Web with our Discover feeds. All of the Discover feeds available on our web client have been optimized for the iPhone, so you'll always have the latest current events at your fingertips.

No matter where you are in the world, Cooliris delivers content that is relevant to where you are based. Since the iPhone can detect your location through GPS, you'll get news customized to your locale (UK users will automatically have a UK News feed available to them, for example). This will be a huge boon to our enthusiastic international user base. Discover also allows you to pull up the related story within its web context by clicking the associated metadata. There's no need to jump out of Cooliris and visit the parent website in order to get the full story!

This is only the first release for Cooliris on the iPhone, and as such it's meant to help you navigate the internet's news and media as simply and easily as possible. As the application grows, you'll be seeing more features currently only available on the web client, as well as new ones which take advantage of the iPhone's unique interface – so stay tuned!
