PicLens, Where Have You Been All My Life?

Josh from Cooliris just emailed me to let me know that PicLens Beta 1 has been released. PicLens completely changes the way view online images. After quickly installing this currently Safari-only plugin, I took it for a spin by visiting my flickr photostream.


Whenever you hover over an image on a site like Flickr, Photobucket or Facebook, a little icon appears in the bottom left corner of that image, similar to Flock's image integration. Click that icon and the magic begins. PicLens takes over and introduces a stellar full-screen slideshow interface that words can't describe. I would usually spam you with tasty screenshots and a review right about now but it's past 3am and I couldn't sleep without getting this out there.

Oh, and you can control PicLens with your Apple remote!
