gBrowser has unfortunately not been updated for the last two years, so it's main features feel a bit old by now. Still, we've decided to have it on the site, just in case users might like it.

gBrowser is a fairly basic image viewer which restores your Finder view somewhat clumsily. The left side of the interface shows an explorer style view of your image folders and the main part of the interface previews the images.

You can drag the useful image slider at the top to zoom in and out of images.

gBrowser doesn't offer any editing features but you can add some sort of drop shadow, sharpening and outline effects to your images.

Double clicking on any image will open it up in a separate window. Now one of the much touted features of the program is supposed to be the slideshow, but sadly enough, every time we tried to launch it, the whole program crashed.

We even tried with only a few images and the same happened again. We therefore suggest limiting yourself to previewing images when using gBrowser.

gBrowser is a very basic image viewer, lacking in functions compared to what you find nowadays. Let's hope it soon gets a much needed update.

Changes

  • More efficiency improvements in file loading and tracking which should further speed up loading and display of folder contents

gBrowser is an image browser/organizer with which you can view and organize your digital image collection (or collections! ). Its layout is based on your file system; what you see in the Finder is what you see in gBrowser, but in a much more convenient way.

It includes many other features, such as slideshow capability, the "Image Viewer" (very useful on multi-monitor setups, it can be used as a non-linear slideshow or just to more easily view pictures as you browse your collection), a utility to create slideshow screensavers, plugin support (well, soon it will :-), free and friendly tech support, and much, much more.
