IrfanView is trying to create new and/or interesting features in its own way, unlike some other graphic viewers, whose whole "creativity" is based on feature cloning, stealing of ideas and whole dialogs from ACDSee and/or IrfanView! (for example: XnView has been stealing/cloning features and whole dialogs from IrfanView, for 7+ years).

From http://www.irfanview.com/

I didn't know that.

I didn't know that.
It seemed rather obvious to me one was copying the other just to look at them. I didn't know which one was doing the copying but I've known about Irfanview longer so I assumed it was older. Looks as though I was right.

Such a great program

i agree with most comments above.

it's dang near must have software.... for me it's all i really use for viewing Image files, so for me it's a must have.

The universal image-viewer: I'll be editing my XP Pro SP2 install discs to add this instead of Microsoft's Fax & Image viewer thingy.

Id go as far as to say this great piece of software by Irfan is a 'must have'.

Thx for the info on the update

Great thanks just updated from an older copy
