This continues to be the best freeware picture viewer available. IrfanView is very capable, but the interface of FastStone is much better, easier to navigate with a mouse only, and more intuitive.
With each update, more small annoyances of what I wished the program would do are removed, as the author[s] seems to have my thoughts in mind with the changes.
I have used several paid applications [for viewing alone], and none worked any better.

I' not certain who is doing the descriptions, or the reviewing, but both parties seem to be high.
The current revision, obtained when using the page link here, is 22.214.171.1240. It is the same as when going directly to IOBit for the file. This is today - 3-7-2013.
This is a fine program, which, unlike the free version of Revo Uninstaller, works on 64 bit programs, as well as 32 bit. That alone should make it the premier choice of everyone.

Someone was not paying attention here. Windows 8 has this built in, and this doesn't appear to be an upgrade.

The way it works - 4 stars
The pricing - 2 stars
Does anyone really think that a one purpose extension to Windows is worth $54? I can wait for Acrobat to open a good long time before it might be worth that amount.

Usually Microsoft releases things I don't like, but they work. This flies in the face of that completely. My Explorer Touch Mouse doesn't work as well on this driver as with the old Intellipoint 8.20 drivers on my Win 7 Ultimate machines - either one of them - tried both to see if the problem was hardware, as they could not be much moire different. Same problem, the scroll feature stops annoyingly, and takes a restart of the computer, or the mouse, to work properly.The sensitivity settings in general are much less capable than the Intellipoint 8.20 driver as well. This is a real FAIL.

Prepare to downvote, because this is about the stupidest "me, too!" idea MickeySoft has ever come up with. Besides looking as though they can't come up with anything original, it is superfluous, because all the sheeple already have their Macs, with the iTunes and all the other "I am too stupid, lazy, or busy to take a moment from my inconsequential life to do an actual install" features.
People ask for this and then wonder why the control is out of their hands, and why the machines will not do what they want them to. This is the answer to that question.
And while I'm at it, not everyone is stupid enough to buy into "the cloud" - Office 364 [365 minus one day of no use in less than a year] should have convinced a few more.

I like Mozilla products as much as the next guy, but only insofar as they suit my needs. Thunderbird since version 3 is more difficult to set up and get working well than Outlook - and they wonder why Microsoft owns the market, for those who don't use web-interface mail.
Also, many of the "add-ons" simply don't work. If they don't work, they should be weeded out, or designated useless on newer versions, and categorized that way.
For most people, Pegasus is free, much more efficient, and less annoying.

It's the new buzzword, describing an almost totally useless feature...

If I was trying to be funny, I could state many things over the past 20+ years that Microsoft has screwed the pooch on, but instead I'll just say that, like many other things these days, there simply is not enough redundancy.

Not too subtle, too arcane.
