This is brutally bad software. Not long after installing it, Safari slowed to a crawl and started beachballing, and shortly thereafter, all my other apps started to lock up, until I completely lost control of my machine. Couldn't even SSH in from another box. Eventually I had no choice but to force it to reset. Since it's an Input Manager plugin, it quickly infects every program you launch after installing it. I ended up having to do a second forced reset soon after the first one. And there is NO UNINSTALLER and no instructions for uninstalling it either. You have to find all of the files it sprayed all over your system and remove them all manually. And then you have to reboot -- again -- before you can actually remove the files from the trash. Awful, awful, awful. Stay away from this junk.

For the longest time I was a big fan of Cooliris but eventually its compatibility updates fell behind the progress of OS X and Safari so I had to let it go. I was pleasantly surprised to see this release today. That is until I saw that there were no release notes and then read a few comments regarding Lion. I navigated to the Cooliris site to get info from the Developer and see that despite this being suggested as an updated release at MacUpdate that support for current browsers and OS'es has lagged considerably. How hard would it be to include at least one complete release note saying what browsers and OS'es are supported instead of making people dig to simply be disappointed in your efforts due to misleading System Requirements listed here.

This build is works on OS X10.5 - 10.7 on Firefox 3.6 - 8.0+. We apologize for the confusion. It looks like MacUpdate automatically grabs our newest release from the Mozilla Firefox Addon site, but does not slip in the release notes.

Disappointed. Attempted to download this new version, thinking they'd made it Lion compatible, but I can't even open the download. (pop up says "no available application to open") I went to the developer's site, and attempted a download there, but get a popup saying my browser is not supported.

Lion is listed both as "Unsupported" and as "NOT Coming Soon." IMO, CoolIris/PicLens no longer has any intention of continuing support of the Mac. I had no trouble opening this version in Lion, but what I got was random, uncompiled parts. Mac-users should probably kiss this one goodbye.

This build is works on OS X 10.5 - 10.7 on Firefox 3.6 - 8.0+. Due to resource constraints, we unfortunately had to discontinue development of our Safari version. :(

Used to love this little plug-in - now it's been stuck in 32-bit forever and thus forces Safari to run in 32-bit mode, the interface hasn't been updated in ages, the photos are all low-res. Started with a lot of promise and has since fallen flat on it's face. Honestly, I'd be happy if they just update the plug-in to be 64-bit compatible. I know it's not a big deal for Safari to run in 32-bit mode, but there isn't any reason for it to have to - it's not that difficult to recompile a plug-in for 64-bit compatibility. The developers just seem lazy.

I really love the look of Cooliris, and it does what it says it'll do...AND it's free. It does run very slowly on my MacBook, makes the fan run while it's on, and is not yet compatible with Lion in Safari. Still, I have enjoyed browsing through when I have some time to waste.
