Karelia Software has released iMedia Browser 2, a major new update to its popular iMedia Browser, a free utility that adds the familiar "media browser" experience to just about any Mac app.
Built from the ground up to resemble the media browser found in several Apple applications, the Karelia iMedia Browser is a stand-alone utility that can be used to quickly access a user's library of photos, sounds, movies, or bookmarks. Now rewritten from the ground up, iMedia Browser 2 adds a new, searchable Flickr browser and boasts a completely new architecture geared for speed.
iMedia Browser 2 allows fast, seamless browsing of photo libraries (including iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom, Flickr, and Pictures folders); music (iTunes, GarageBand, and Music folders); movies (iTunes, iPhoto, and Movies folders), and bookmarks (Safari and Firefox). Browse items and zoom in with QuickLook, or drag items you find into any productivity application. iMedia Browser 2 can be activated either from the dock or from a small icon in the menu bar.
Dan Wood, President of Karelia Software said
We're excited about the responsiveness of this new version, which we built by teaming up with Boinx Software for the open-source framework at the core of the program ... Browsing is now blazing fast, which opens up a whole world of possibilities in getting quick access to your digital libraries.
Device Requirements: * Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later * 1.6 MB -- Pricing and Availability: The Karelia iMedia Browser 2.0 is free and available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Utilities category.
