    Here's something I got from TUAW, very cool app! :)

    It's called Piclens. I love it! :)

    http://piclens.com/mac/

    "It is a Safari-only plugin from Cooliris that enables gorgeous full-screen slideshows on the fly, out of whatever set of images you are currently viewing in Flickr, Photobucket, Facebook, as well Google, Yahoo and Ask.com Image search engines.

    Once the plugin is installed, you'll notice a discreet slideshow icon in the lower left corner when you mouse over a slideshow-appropriate thumbnail on one of the abovementioned sites. Click that icon and watch your monitor fill with the slideshow. Then you can navigate by using the onscreen slideshow controls ala iPhoto or use your keyboard - or even your Apple Remote! To exit out of the slideshow and return to your browser window, just hit your escape key. If you're like me, you might not be impressed with this concept at all until you've tried it for yourself - but trust me, it's pretty cool.

    Even more impressive is that for now at least - it's only compatible with Safari, which is a trend I wouldn't mind continuing! You'll need 10.4 or later as well since it needs Safari 2.0."

    Oh and it's free! :)

    Is anyone's Safari unexpectedly crashing after installing Piclens?

    I've identified three websties already that keep on causing my Safari to crash and I didn't have a problem with them before. but outside that, most of the websites I visit don't cause any crash.

    Piclens has been renamed Cooliris. Give it a try. It's a nice plug-in for your favorite browser.

    have been using cooliris for a few weeks now. Great for viewing internet images. Wish they could integrate this with webpages.
