Browsing through images can be a little boring and monotonous but there is an extension which works really well; using a 3D like interface for looking up images or even videos.
CoolIris is a extension which works on Chrome and you can just about browse any image online with its very interesting graphical browser. Before downloading the extension I need to warn you that the CoolIris extension does use your graphics card for rendering.
About Cool Iris
- Download the Cool Iris extension from here and install it in Chrome.
- While using Chrome you come across any image it will show you a new symbol.
- Clicking on this icon starts the Cooliris extension and allows you to browse images as if you are viewing them against a wall in an exhibition.
- I clicked on a friends image on Facebook and I could browse all the pictures he was tagged in through the extension without needing to go through the album.
I started playing around with this extension and really think it is a brilliant way to browse images or videos online. It is said an image is worth a thousand words and going by that logic a video should be worth a million. So I decided to put up the CoolIris demo video.
Go ahead and download Cooliris extension and try it out for yourself. Do drop in your comments about your opinions on it.
