FFView is a fast OpenGL-powered picture viewer a la ACDsee (2.x). It is aimed at letting you read manga or other comics onscreen (windowed & fullscreen mode). Features include fast prefetching, smooth panning, voice commands, 2-page mode, a magnifying lens, the ability to browse pictures inside archives (.rar/.cbr, .zip/.cbz/, .pdf) and sticky per-picture options. It reads EXIF tags and is scriptable.
Supported languages:

projects on hold

Sorry folks, but we decided to put all our software projects on hold - the main reason simply being lack of time. More recently the thing so called "real life" has been keeping both of us (Folkert & Patrick) rather busy. This is why development and support stalled.

Nevertheless, this should not make our software less attractive – it is still great software, mature enough for daily use. Therefore, please go ahead and download any of the packages and make use of it. Even better: Write us a nice email if you like it.

If you are a developer and interested in taking on the task of continuing one of the projects, then please contact us.
