QuickViewer Portable, an ultra-fast Windows image viewer!
"QuickViewer is a very fast image viewer for Windows; maybe the fastest there is as of today. It is portable, updated regularly by its author, and open source on top of all that." —Martin Brinkmann, ghacks.net (June 27, 2017)
"It has two-page display, right-open, zoom in, zoom out, full screen display function so that it can be used as a book viewer, and you can assign each operation to the shot cut key from "keyboard input setting" in the help menu." —SoftNavi.com (Apr 7, 2017)
"...we must say that it is not only images in folders but also a portable program that displays images from .zip or 7Z compressed folders." —Göktürk, indir5.com (Mar 25, 2017)
QuickViewer is an ultra-fast image viewer for Microsoft Windows devices that has been designed from the ground up for speed.
