I'm using Firefox 3.6 and Exif Viewer is not compatible with 3.6. FxIF comes up as the only available exif viewer. I haven't tried it though, as I am hoping Exif Viewer gets an update to the current version of Firefox.

Regards

Exif Viewer by Alan Raskin appears to work in FF 3.6 (even though your Firefox upgrade to 3.6 may have removed it as being incompatible). I just tested Exif Viewer version 1.52 under Firefox 3.6 and was able to read EXIF OK without any crashes or anything like that.

You can get 1.52 from this page:

BTW, if you're using MSIE, Opanda's IExif works fine.

Opanda also has a version that supports "Firefox: 0.7 - 3.0+".

I hope that helps someone.

Only if you're using Windows. ;-)

In addition to Opanda's iExif product, another good EXIF reader for Windows users is PhotoME (and it also runs in Wine under Linux).

Exif Viewer by Alan Raskin and FxIF by Ted Mielczarek are both cross platform add-ons (they work in Firefox, regardless of your operating system).

But it doesn't work as a browser plug-in. (Does it?)

I also use ExitTool (which is platform independent) through a GUI front end.

You have to install a Firefox extension with it (then, you'll get an "Open with PhotoME" choice if you right click on an image. It's a bit "heavier" program than most EXIF viewers though.
