Cooliris blows up your Web-surfing experience into a larger-than-life graphical experience. It takes the images it finds on nearly any Web site, expands them to super-extra-large size, and then lets you surf through them in a classy scaling interface that we think we last saw in the Iron Man movie. Or maybe it was The Dark Knight.

Whatever the inspiration, there's no doubt that the cross-platform and cross-browser Cooliris puts the "graphic" back in "graphic user interface". Installing it places a button on the Toolbar. When you're on a Cooliris-enabled Web site, click the Cooliris button to activate the Cooliris interface. Your screen will go black, and all the images on the site will zoom past you as if on a roller-coaster. They stop soon after, and from there you can surf the site using the subtly-placed search bar at the top of your monitor. Click on an image to enlarge it. If it's a still image, it simply enlarges. If it's a video, it enlarges and starts playing.

Currently, the plug-in only supports a handful of the most popular graphics-intensive site, such as Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, Picasa, Flickr, and a few others. A WordPress plug-in allows those who use that blogging system to create Cooliris functionality, and there's a Webmaster's guide on the Cooliris site for users who host their own sites. We also noticed occasional stability problems on Internet Explorer, but they were intermittent at best. Installing the add-on is worth it just for the sweeping, futuristic way that images stream by when you browse, even though there might not be much practical application at this point.

"amazing way to browse pictures and videos!!!"

February 26, 2011  |  By dirtyvu

 |  Version: Cooliris for Firefox 1.12.0.36949

Pros

- amazing way to browse (stunning graphical interface) pictures and videos. it's so good, you'll dig through all your old photos because it's just so cool how it works.
- easy way to search multiple websites for media.

Cons

- no MP3 player so there's no way to browse your musical library (this is a huge bummer since the interface is so good that you go through your entire library just because the interface makes it so easy to find your stuff)

Summary

When I was looking for a media viewer that was tablet friendly to browse pictures, videos, and music, someone recommended Cooliris. I had never heard of this before. But it's just the most amazing app for browsing and searching your media. It works great for a Tablet PC and works even better for a normal computer.
It was just so easy to browse, find, and play movies online, that I was actually just hopping around and playing movies that I would never play had I been sitting at the main page for Youtube or Hulu.

The only negative really is that you can't browse or play any music (you can only play music videos). Please add a music browser to this app please!!!!

"its awesome"

January 04, 2010  |  By master_mind413

 |  Version: Cooliris for Firefox 3 1.11.1.26925

Pros

the tv channel viewer is by far my favorite and since I dont have cable any more it makes it that much more useful I can still watch all my shows just now in more style

Cons

it can run a little slow at times and is resource hoggy but that is expected because of the graphics in its interface but could still use a little less I think, on one gig is uses nearly 84% of it

Summary

I love it even with the resource hog problems I think it could be the future i would like to see some more features added in like an easier way to view full web pages in this format like browsing facebook but in the iris interface and more tv channels included with better searching and maybe some tabbed browsing included there is so much that could be done and iris is just touching the tip of the ice burg on this one

"Great little program.."

May 15, 2009  |  By OldeFart

 |  Version: Cooliris for Firefox 3 1.10.0.24532

Pros

Wonderful effects.. Makes me think I actually have multiple monitors.

Cons

Sometimes freezes.. Makes normal firefox look dull in comparison..

Summary

I use it quite often, for videos of various interests this is super. Add the hulu access to movies and it's nothing short of great entertainment. Why can't IE come up with an innovation like this? Guess they believe what they offer is good 'nuff..
