From Stefan Wobbe:
GIF Viewer is a very simple yet very useful application that will help you open Graphics Interchange Format bitmaps quick and easy on any Windows machine out there.
Windows 7 users will definitely find it a life-saving tool because, as many of you already know, the operating system doesn't come with a built-in GIF viewer, which means this particular format is only handled by Internet Explorer.
As a result, opening a simple GIF file needs more computer resources that you'd be tempted to believe, so GIF Viewer is indeed a handy utility.
The interface is very simple and that's exactly how it was supposed to be. But besides the fact that it's able to open GIF files, the application also comprises some other goodies, including a dedicated tool to convert those image files to other formats such as PNG, JPG and TIF.
Plus, GIF Viewer also has the power to launch 'Paint' in order to edit the animation or let you upload the image on the Internet and thus share it quick and easy.
Although it is designed to handle animations, this application works quite smoothly, which means it could be loaded on older computers at well, without slowing down the operating system.
The good thing is that it does its job in a flawless way, opening files very quickly and showing animations with the help of a clean and user friendly interface. The bad thing is that it doesn't provide a file association screen, so in case you want to open a GIF with this app just by double-clicking it, you have to set file associations in Windows.
All in all, GIF Viewer is a nice way to deal with GIF files and since it's such a light tool, it deserves a spot on anyone's computer.
