      XnView MP vs IrfanView
      pros, cons and recent comments
      henriquedominguesgarcia XnView has dozens of tools and filters for fast image editing, as well as an integrated file manager with several functions to organize images. Besides everything runs on both Windows and Linux. It's a bit slow compared to Irfanview, but it's still one of the best programs of its kind.

      KennethWilhelmsson nomacs is so far the best contender to irfanview. You can go through images and delete or keep. Scale and cut. Having some trouble with paste, but I hope that is a setting. Or an yet undiscovered feature.

      Closest thing I've used so far to Irfanview on windoze. Quickly view, resize, crop and move on. Perfect for e-mailing work related photo's.

      gThumb vs IrfanView
      pros, cons and recent comments
      It lacks the simplicity and the 'just-works' feel of Irfan. gThumb keeps resizing images, doesn't respond logically to a scroll wheel and has an overal annoying interface.

      gThumb does not have some of the more important and convenient features found in IrfanView.
