Awesome, keep up the good work!

That was fast, too. Just got three Twitter texts back to back (device updates are great). Put the phone back in my shirt, Twitter ringtone again. Deja vu twice.

Now help us settle something of a bet in the other topic. Is this the uber-anticipated portable freeware app with millions of downloads in its local version that was coming before it came out or were you talking about something else?

Since Animated GIF is mentioned in the features, maybe you should also mention Animated PNG, because that's what differentiates XnView from competetion.

Huh? Not many apps support APNGs yet, and it's unsure if APNG or MNG will be widely adopted. And Animated GIF support is a big deal, I don't know of many free apps that do it well (GIMP does it OK).

Signature automatically removed for being too awesome.

XnView is an image viewer, and since all image viewers support Animated GIF, it's not a big deal.

But XnView is the only image viewer with full APNG/MNG support.
