"Irfanview is far superior"
Review Date: 2015-02-24
Pros: they recognize an excellent image program enough,IrfanView, that they copy it. Imitation is the best form of flattery so the good folks at IrfanView should feel real good.
Cons: Xnview is obviously trying to copy IrfanView feature for feature but is still coming up short. It's so obvious what they're doing it isn't even funny.
Other Thoughts: By the way, during install, British English is the only option. Yes, I said British English. That's hilarious, never heard of such a thing. Well there's no Pip Pip Cheerios in my book so I think I'll pass on this IrfanView rip-off.
