View PSD in explorer

I was searching on the internet and couldnt find anything.

Does anyone know of a program that can allow me to view PSD file (Photoshop) in explorer?

PS: I normally run PS CS5 x64 version.

I don't think this is possible, because the PSD doesn't just contain the image you're working with, but also information on layers... and stuff lol (not really proficient with PS, but it just sounds logical to me).

Well a 3D desktop program I had before could, plus old versions of PS could do it when they were only x32.

I can not locate anything for IE or firefox that will do that. There are a ton of psd viewers though if you are just trying to avoid installing PS or something.
