I just came across a FireFox add-on for EXIF that although it only gives you basic details, works well
It is called 'exify' and is currently at version 1.2. It also only seems to work with photos uploaded direct to AP, not those linked from other sites.
But what it does is clever. Mouse over an image in a thread, and it pops-up some basic exif data at the bottom of the photo (if the member has included it, in their upload. See example below. No more right click to view EXIF.
