Finally! A multi-format image viewer for Windows that supports SVG.

I have only been using ImageGlass for a few days now, but I am already so happy with it. For a long time I have wanted a simple image viewer that supports scalable vector graphics along with other popular raster & vector formats. ImageGlass has been the only free answer for Windows so far. It has a simple interface for browsing images in a very familiar manner. It can be customized to open images in external editors. There are probably many more settings & configurations that I haven't yet explored. After I have had more time with it I will update my review. For now, it gets 5 stars.

prioritizing "upload to facebook" over the "open with" function is kind of dumb

Worked fine on a couple of tiny little JPEGs but opening a completely normal, 12-megapixel JPEG from a camera causes it to completely bog the whole computer down to the point of being unresponsive and consume over 4GB of memory.

Unusable on anything but trivially small images.

My experience with 12 (FujiFilm), 23 (Sony) and 34 (Nokia) megapixel JPEGs is very positive. It seems quite fast to render. I'm using ImageGlass version 7.0.7.26 (release mid 2019 I think). It hasn't failed to render a JPEG yet. RAM usage doesn't often seem to go over 200MB. I once saw it on 450MB, but moving to another JPEG had the RAM usage drop to 200MB again.
