I've been warming up to a new Firefox extension from a company called Cooliris of late (Most other browsers also supported).
It's turning out to be of increasing use browsing the web, both on the computer, and on the iPhone, with the new Cooliris App. This recent review by Macworld explains:
"...the minds behind the pictorial browser Cooliris believe there’s still benefit to the image as a means for relaying information. That benefit comes in the form of Cooliris’ 3D Wall—a three-high, ever-expanding string of related images and videos that link to locations around the Web.
A look at the free browser plugin gives you an idea of what Cooliris is all about. After installing Cooliris, its icon appears in the Web browser on your computer. Click the Cooliris icon in that browser and you can enter a search term in the Search field and browse sites such as Flickr, Yahoo, YouTube, and Amazon.com for pictures associated with your search..."
And what’s it good for? When looking at current events it’s an easy way to get a general idea of what the hot events of the day are based on the number of related images you see. Cooliris is also a wonderful way to browse image-centric sites such as Flickr as the interface is beautiful and shows off images to their best advantage. And, like Cover Flow, it’s a good way to browse catalogs of items as you would at many online emporiums.
The Cooliris iPhone application works similarly to the desktop client, though it’s not as full-featured as it doesn’t currently include a Shopping component. But its general operation is the same."
Think about it as a very visual StumbleUpon, an old favorite to serendipitously discover cool content on the web. Cooliris is a different way to experience the torrent of content on the web. And yes, they do have a blog. The company has done a particularly good job making the software and service easy to install and figure out for first-timers. Recommended.
