want a better Photo viewer

Hello all,
I am looking for a freeware (and preferably portable) Photo viewer as an option to default windows viewer. The Default viewer wastes too much space on Buttons and menu bars , especially on widescreen display and the image appears smaller due to such waste. Also, I want the software to display EXIF and buttons (Next,prev etc) as an transparent overlay over the full image, So that maxiumum screen is utilized.

My Pc-
AMD Manchaster X2 3800
MSi k8nGM2-FID mobo
4 GB ram
2 TB RAID 0 sata array
Nvidia 9800GT
Full HD 16:9 Screen.

Found a discussion here but the thread is old,
Image Viewer suggestions!

However, i want the EXIF to be shown RIGHT THERE. By default. Without going into a seperate menus. I already have Infran view, PhotoFiltre, and Inkscape. They lack an option to show EXIF as an overlay by default.

Infact, I am spoilt my by Samsung note , which does it all for me via a viewer called 'quickpic'

Not free, but I would recommend ACDSee Pro 6 ($100) which is an excellent image browser (as well as more, but I don't use it for anything but image viewing). You can try that as well as ACDSee 15 ($50) for free and decide whether either meets your needs and whether you are willing to buy them.

Thanks for the input. I am not spending on the software, hence would like a freeware option.
Thanks anyways.
