Cooliris Browser Plug-in

Cooliris makes a couple of neat browser plug-ins. One of them allows you to preview a photostream, such as Flickr, SmugMug, Zenfolio, etc., in a 3D "photowall". It makes previewing a large number of images much easier and quicker. The thumbnails can be larger, plus it will display the photographs in full screen if you want. It will even pick up the title and caption information from the photo-sharing sites. Very cool plug-in if you look at large photo galleries on the web. There are plug-ins for both IE7 and Firefox. However, I can't seem to get it to work on IE7. However, it works beautifully on my Firefox 3.

They also have another plug-in call Preview that allows you to preview the page that a hyperlinks links to in a small window. Very nice little feature for browsing the web. Preview doesn't work with IE7, but does work with Firefox 3.
