  • QuickLook

    Free Windows Website

    Background :
    One of the few features I missed from Mac OS X is Quick Look. It allows user peek into a file content in a lightening speed by just pressing the Space key. Windows, on the other hand, does not has this handy feature ... until now.

    I am aware that several alternatives are already available on the Internet (e.g. WinQuickLook and Seer). Despite these options, I still decide to craft another one by myself, because they are either not being actively developed, lacks of variety, or asks for a amount of $$$.

    Highlights :
    Tons of supported file types (full list here)
    Fluent design (new in version 0.3)
    Touchscreen friendly
    HiDPI support
    Preview from Open and Save File Dialog
    Preview from 3rd-party file managers (see a list here)
    Easy extended by plugins
    Strict GPL license to keep it free forever
