Blows away all comers while still retaining free-ness.

FIVE stars.

XnView is pretty incredible. I first tried out the "lite" (portable) version, and really appreciated all of its customization options, from colors to keyboard shortcuts. The interface is not bad, and also highly customizable (from super detailed to clean and neat). I enjoy and trust it so much that it I have now--finally--replaced my default photo viewer (Windows Live Photo Gallery). Oh, and it's freeware (with donations appreciated). Highly recommended.

Very useful for me.

After extra effort to setup full or half screen viewer - simply perfect.

I wanted to wean myself off of commercial software and P{aint Shop Pro with its integrated file manager was what I had been using. I hate Corel products - buggy junk with insidious nagware even in the paid versions - so the GIMP and Xnview became my mainstays. The combination is far superior to the Corel product.

Excellent image management tool.

FIVE stars.

Simple to use, reliable, full of useful tools for all your picture editing needs, and it reads every image format ever devised. ;) No other viewer does that. I can even view pictures from Atari or Commodore... Incredible program. It's not a bad file browser, too. Small and compact, portable, too. I cannot praise it enough. However, just one thing always bothers me with XNView: it feels slow. I mean especially filters and zoom in-out if filtering is enabled. Why not using hardware acceleration for that, and a little bit more efficient code. That would make me give it ten stars. :) So because the code feels a bit slow, just five stars. :) Thank you for a great program. I've been using it for like 10 years or so. [after ACDSee that became too bloated for me]

Yesterday they released v1.98.6 and today we have v1.98.7. This is what happened apparently:

Awesome software, like ACDSEE from way back, but without the bloat. 5 stars the way.

A superb viewer. I have checked a few including Irfanview and while both are excellent I prefer XNView.

Many of the "problems" that cause people to lower their grades for this program, can easily be solved by changing the configuration. One of XNViews strongest sides is its flexible and powerful configuration, but one has to invest some time choosing the ones that match you preferences.

Excellent pic viewer. Probably the best with irfanview.

Like another user said below, it could use a speed boost dealing with RAW + CR2 (canon raw) formats.

irfanview handles them so much faster!
