FASTEST image viewer in the world
As higher and higher Megapixel photos are produced...i am having a hard time finding the fastest image viewer around. i tried using a few but not so impressed with its speed compared to my old trusty ACDSee Classic Ver 2.4.3 which is a "classic" but old dinosaurs from 10 years ago! It has one neat feature which is read-ahead and cache behind which makes it the fastest image viewer a decade ago... one complain i have about ACDSee now is that it is not able to read EXIF for auto-rotated images (imported via Nikon View NX).
Any idea which image viewer is fastest?

Re: FASTEST image viewer in the world
I believe the fractions of seconds it takes to even load RAW images on recent average hardware can easily be neglected. Irfanview is pretty fast but is not colour-managed. In RAW files it will only display the embedded JPG. For RAW data viewing use Fast Picture Viewer.
