Cooliris (for Desktop), formerly known as PicLens, is a web browser extension developed by Cooliris, Inc. The plugin provides an interactive 3D-like experience for viewing digital images and videos from the web and from desktop applications. The software places a small icon atop image thumbnails that appear on a webpage. Clicking on the icon loads the Cooliris 3D Wall, a browsing environment that gives the user the effect of flying through a three-dimensional space.[1]

Released to the public in January 2008, the New York Times described Cooliris as the "new immersive approach to Web navigation".[2] Cooliris went out to win the 2008 Crunchies Award for Best Design.[3] The plugin has received over 50 million downloads.[4]

As of May 2014 browser plugins are unavailable from the official website. There are only links to tablet apps - for iOS and Android.
