PicLens is a newly released plug-in for the Mozilla Firefox browser (Windows only), by Cooliris, that lets the user launch a full-screen slideshow while browsing photos on sites such as Flickr. It was first released last year for the Safari browser and can best be described as something similar to the slideshow feature in Picasa. Support for PicLens is currently provided for Facebook, Flickr, Friendster, Picasa, and image search results from Google and Yahoo. In addition, web sites can add support for PicLens to their site by including support for Media RSS.

While attempting to implement a Suckerfish dropdown recently I ran across a problem that causes the menu do not function properly in IE 7. Basically, if you change focus within the browser then move back across the dropdowns, the menus stick in place on the screen. Fortunately, ‘Built from Source’ has posted a simple solution to this problem.
