- by Mental_Freefall, 7 months agoRated 5 out of 5Comparing it to other Exif viewers it has a much better layout. At the moment this is the best Exif reader you can get! It would be nice to have a one click save option, however copy / past also works...
Developer responseposted 7 months agoThanks a lot for the review. I don't think I will make a "save to file" functionality (Not even sure it is possible for security reasons). But I could easily make a one-click "copy meta-data" functionallity, essentially doing same thing as marking meta-data in popup and pressing Ctrl-C. Would that be useful?
Update Dec 15th 2020: Well, I added a "copy to clipboard" button in latest version 2.0.

some sites don't show "Save Image As…" in image context menu, then xIFr can help it. xIFr window show "Save Image As…" in image context menu.
- by Patrice, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5I re-EDIT my comment after 8 months as my old comment (below) is not anymore up to date nor accurate with all the update you did on your wonderful EXIF viewer (like the dark mode and so on)
Your FANTASTIC EXIF viewer can even read exif on a picture hidden behind a layer or exif of a photo put as background, or even protected photos by a fake extension. That's impressive, your exif reader shines where lots of other type of EXIF viewers fail.
So In simple words: your exif reader is the best out there, period!
Thanks a lot-a-lot!!!

Below is my old comment
I Edit my comment, I was not that fair...
First of all Thanks a lot for your answer.
I tried other exif viewer and they all can read some exif, not all, as well, maybe depending the software the pictures was post processed.
The forum I am speaking about, do not stripe exif ;) but it seems that xIFr does the same as other exif viewer, and even better ;). Maybe php (or imagemagic on the server) has a more extended reading on exif, (just a thought).
In all case, xIFr is certainly the best in the way exif are shown, the most user friendly as well.
I removed all the other exif viewer from Firefox and kept xIFr, it's fast, accurate, well thought and... Beautiful
On Linux I am not in dark mode, it's a personal set-up mixing Dark and default mode. It would be lovely if you can allow to force the dark mode, but i would prefer if you add one more tab for the histogram, like that i can get ride of the histogram add-on i have actually and have all in one add-on ;)
Again Thanks a lot Stig, excellent work!

Developer responseposted 2 years agoHi Patrice
Thanks for the comment.
There are some images it cannot read the exif data of. But in my own experience it is does just as well or better than most other exif-reader addons. Also notice, even though a forum shows exif of uploaded photos, the exif data is sometimes stripped from the scaled or recompressed version actually shown on the forum pages.
The dark mode follows OS settings. In Windows 10 (requires latest Win10 1903) settings, you need to set Dark as your "Color" scheme, or Dark as "Default App mode" if using the "Custom" scheme:
Settings -> Personalisation -> Colors.
I hope that can help you a bit. Unfortunately I don't know how to set it up in Linux/Ubuntu, or if it is supported at all on Linux.
Will probably add a setting allowing you to force dark mode in final version.
UPDATE: Thanks a lot for your updated review :-)
