Is there a way to still get Cooliris and say use an older browser to run it?
That's a good question. The plugin isn't available anymore from their website, but maybe the last version can still be found from another place on the internet. I'll make some research. Maybe you could help me in that search
The way it is now, I can't see the cover clearly enough even blown up to the size when you pause your cursor over it.
I will replace the Cooliris view by something else, but it won't happen until many months. For the moment, you could use the "Thumb Size" control at the buttom of the grids to display bigger images.
