I don't see how it doesn't compare, the only difference is, it is on the side and can be resized.

How well does that work with animated GIF's? I'm at work now, where we still use XP, so I can't test it.

It doesn't show the animation just the static image!

How to get View Filmstrip in Vista & Windows 7

This works in Vista (which also lacks "Filmstrip"), so it probably works in Windows 7 as well:

Windows preview pane is no substitute for “Filmstrip” mode where pics can be examined quickly with the right (large) size, rotated, deleted, etc. The solution I found quite good was as follows:

Open Windows Explorer and open a folder which contains pictures. Click on one of the pictures and then click on the “Open” icon to the left of “Slide Show”. The option I suggest “Windows Photo Gallery” probably isn’t listed but it’s part of the Windows operating system and has a good “filmstrip mode”. So, click on “Choose default program…”. Then click on the “Browse” button. Then scroll down to the folder labeled Windows Photo Gallery and open it. Finally click on WindowsPhotoGallery.exe and open it. This will make that program one of your options when you (as above) click on the “Open” icon to the left of “Slide Show”.

Important: When you’re in Windows Photo Gallery, you must once again double-click on a picture to open its “Filmstrip-like” mode.

If you prefer that, by default, another program opens your picture files, either uncheck the box that says “Always use the selected program to open this type of file” when you initialize Windows Photo Gallery above or follow the instructions above after “Choose default program…” and choose the program of your choice. After doing that, the program you choose will be the default “picture opener”, but you will still be able to have “filmstrip” mode by using the Windows Photo Gallery option.

Final note: Within Windows Photo Gallery you may have to choose “File” then “Add folder to gallery” if your pics don’t show up for any reason.
