in Windows "since Hector was a pup".
There have been many enhancements over the years, and the product has gotten larger and larger (with many good features for some, I suppose, but all I wanted was a fantastic image browser that was fast and lean). Naturally, the product has also gotten much more expensive over the years... to go along with what I feel to be "bloat". They've moved into "image editing", which I already have Photoshop for. I just want an image viewer/browser that's simple and fast and displays pictures exactly the way I want to see them... as you do.
So I myself still use the "best and fastest" version 4.01 (from 2001), although I also install the slightly prettier version 5 (from 2003) on machines for family and friends.
They're now up to version 14 on the "non-pro" edition ($79) and version 5 on the "pro" side ($239). I actually invested in the Pro version 2.5 a few years back because I had bought a new digital camera and thought it would be useful, but VIRTUALLY NEVER USE IT (really still preferring the old version 4 from 2001)!!!
Naturally they no longer sell or support the older versions I have and use, but that's fine with me.
Anyway, PM me if you're interested in trying version 4 or 5. I can get it to you along with all of my setup to get you started right away. I'm sure you will appreciate its simplicity of user-interface that belies its great depth of functionality.
