PicLens : Redifining FireFox Experience

While I was searching for a really cool add-on that I could plug into my FireFox browser, I came accross this one called PicLens. It gives the user a far better net-surfing experience by making image and video searches a lot more interactive and enjoyable. It has something what they call as "The Wall" which is a 3-D interface to one's search results. It feels like picking one's choice from a wall of images and videos. Videos could be watched on the wall by clicking on it, which means users don't have to go out of the wall and go to the video's main page just to watch it. This gives the user more convenience in searching for the media that they are interested with. I give it a 9 out of 10 points, the 1 point less is for the fact that it does not run linux machines..hehe :] For more information about this cool add-on, just visit the site http://www.piclens.com/ and enjoy a better and much cooler FireFox :]

Hi Jeffrey,

Thank you for posting about PicLens! We truly appreciate it. We're delighted to hear that you are enjoying PicLens and hope your readers will too.

We definitely want to support Linux in the future, but due to resource constraints the timing of it is still uncertain. Thank you for asking and please stay tuned in!
