CThruView Transparent Image Viewer Comments

A good transparent screen viewer, but outdated

I haven't used this app for a while, only because it was never updated to later versions of the Java plug-in (it relies on Java 1.6, many years old now). Java has to be kept updated to maintain computer security, it is not a good idea to run old Java plug-ins just for this app. If CThruView was updated it would be an excellent alternative to the commercial transparent image viewers like Image Overlay Utility.
