gqview is clearly missing in the above list. While it is restricted to browsing only the contents of one directory, it provides since version 2.0 excellent search and printing functions (including flexbile arrangement of many pictures on one sheet), display of EXIF data, organisation of images into collections (independent from their storage location) and a powerful search function for similar or duplicate images. And above all, it's a very mature and fast program, also one that can be efficiently controlled by keyboard and combined with external programs (Gimp, image rotations, custom ImageMagick scripts) as keyboard shortcuts operating on images.

I see that "flat" views of images according to their creation date and views of all images underneath a directory tree are available in the developer version gqview 2.1.

I couldn't have said it better. gqview is a program that got it right,
exactly like early 2.xx versions of ACDSee on Windows. Blazingly-fast,
simple UI and Blazingly-fast. It was also pretty speedy.

Easy to use over slower ssh links too.

I love the speed of gqview.

One thing I wish it had was support for loading raw digital camera files via dcraw. If that were possible, it would enable users to select a set of files, and send them off to, say, ufraw for colour processing and conversion to jpeg. UFRaw is great, but it's missing a nice interface for selecting images and initiating the batch processing.

Is anyone seriously working on dcraw support for either gqview or gdk-pixbuf?
