As in other polls conducted over this year, there was no majority vote getter in the poll ran in early September. A common theme throughout the poll was the use of multiple image applications depending on what the user wanted to accomplish (i.e., viewing or editing). But there has to be a winner and the widely popular IrfanView once again reigns as the favorite amongst BBR users, garnering 35% of the votes cast.

Irfanview, which runs on the Windows platform, is a very fast, small, compact and innovative FREEWARE* graphic viewer for Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003. (* = for non-commercial use). A feature list of the product can be found here. The author offers a comprehensive package of plugins for added functionality and also keeps an updated History of Changes.

The second highest vote was given to an application included with the Microsoft Windows operating system, Picture Viewer. This was not entirely surprising for the poll, which was primarily for image viewing. The general consensus was "Simple, fast, and useful."

All in all, seventeen of the twenty five products received votes, with another six applications mentioned when voting Other. This is a great indicator of the variety of programs available today, which gives the user multiple options when looking for programs.

The list below reflects all of the programs mentioned. Links are verified as of 10/8.
