I’ve just come across PicLens by cooliris which is a browser plugin for IE, FireFox and Safari that gives you an immersive view of images, photos and videos on various websites like Google, YouTube, Amazon and more.

It’s a small plugin, less than 2MB in size and once loaded pick your favourite content provider, type in your search as above and get offered a wonderful fully-interactive wall of images.
