Firefox 3D image Search

Today I was looking for some interesting Firefox browser add-ons and accidentally found one 3D image addon called Cooliris. I downloaded and installed this addon and checked whether it is good stuff or not. It is really impressing as the normal Google image search displays in 3-dimensional view with additional features. There are many other add-ons which provide the same 3-dimensional photo search feature. Let us check this one first and go to other add-ons. You might be interested to see, how photo viewing is different on my PC after installing this tool. Some of the screenshots are attached below.

If we select one image, it will be displayed as below.

Cooliris is not just for Google. It works well for other platforms like Bing, YouTube, etc. It can be selected from the options on right-hand top of the window. You just need to click on the search and various options will come out.
