Cool Add-Ons for Firefox Browser

Do you use the Mozilla Firefox web browser?  One of the really useful things about the browser is the ability to customize the functionality of it with add-ons.  Here are a couple I would highly recommend.  Both are from Cooliris: 

  • Cooliris Previews – “Picture-in-Picture browsing which lets you preview links and rich-media without clicking or leaving your current page, so you can browse faster than ever. Simply mouseover your link or our Cooliris icon, and a preview window instantly appears with your content. No more clicking back and forth.”
  • PicLens – “instantly transforms your browser into a full-screen slideshow experience. With just one click, PicLens makes photos come to life via a cinematic presentation that goes beyond the confines of the traditional browser window.”

 I have been using previews for a while now and just found out about PicLens. It allows you to more easily view photos from Facebook, Google and Yahoo Image Search, Flickr and many others by giving you a simple to use, full-screen show of all the photos on the web page you are viewing. Very slick!
