    Best??? For Windoze:
    With G Chrome: EXIF Viewer 2.1.3 (I think it was the only 1 I could find.)
    With FFox: EXIF Viewer 1.8.1; FxIF 0.4.5 (Two 1st ones that show up.)

    All are good, all have +/-s.

    CC, Image editing OK.

    I saw Opanda listed for IE, but I think it's good to always get the latest browser because of security fixes. (IE9 seems to be the latest.)

    I've used a few and I still think that PhotoMe Beta is still the best.

    The layout and formatting is about as good as I want it, and it's read all camera exifs since I've started using it till current, and it gives some very useful info(GPS/Positional info) that I've never seen in others.

    Problem is tho that the developers have stopped supporting it(not that it needs it).

    it still reads raw files from many cameras old and or new.
    eg. support for it was stopped way back on '09 with the current beta version, but it still reads raw files properly from all the newest cameras that I've tried so far(D800's and so forth).

    It's pretty small, and fast rendering and has that all important rightclick support for your browser(that I know of). But it is a standalone program and can be induced either from a program shortcut or rightclick action within Windows Explorer on any image.

    I suppose that if someone decides to make a program that is similar to PhotoMe Beta, then I'll probably switch to that for any more modern features it may have.

    KUSO is also a useful program, but again it's now unsupported(years ago). Formatting is not quite as nice as PhotoMe so I've abandoned it.

    There is also an online EXIF viewer .... Jeffrey's EXIF viewer which loads the current online image into ExifTools and returns as much exif info as possible.

    Partly hard to read, but very detailed when it does return any info, and there are issues of trying to load any subsequent images to the initial image, in a load of more than one images on a single page.
    Useful to an extent, but not ideal.

    Yes, Kuso appears to have some kudos. Just downloaded it.
