IrfanView is a super-fast super-small image viewer for Windows and has been my default image viewer for two decades now. It was created and is maintained by Irfan Å kiljan from Vienna.

About Irfanview

I can remember to this day the time I discovered IrfanView for the first time. It was my first gig in the software industry around 2002 and Windows and all the software installers were dead-slow on work computers. Looking for an image viewer on the web, I found IrfanView. It had all the features I needed, but what stood out for me was its blazing-fast installation speed. Blink! and it was already done. I am happy to report that it is that fast to this day. And needless to say that it has been my defacto image viewer in all these years and I have even looked for clones of it on Linux, cause it is one of those rare Windows programs that are very capable.


Tried with: IrfanView 4.60
