Hi All.

Given the number of people mentioning tiff viewers, and very large image
viewers et al, I thought it probably worth mentioning FirstPROOF. You can
see it on our web site if you want, but basically it's a Harlequin PGB
viewer that's been extended to cope with (most) TIFF (files/formats - but we
plan on adding these over time; to a degree depending on customer
requirements) and was developed for the printing industry. Main features
are: copes with very very large images (we daily use a 100Kx100K image for
testing, but have gone up to sizes several times larger than that), you can
zoom in, zoom out, rotate, flip, negate, ... There's a resizeable floating
navigator window for assisting with moving around. Lots of various tools for
measurements - distance, angle, 1D, 2D, color, density, etc... Copes with
gray, rgb, cmyk, spot colors,... Tools for searching, ink limits,.. Lots of
documentation. Best feature is that it's performance is probably the best
there is. We think it's the ultimate viewer. If anyone's interested, in that
it might be of use to them, you can follow up via our web site (for more
info) and/or ask me.

Now this contrasts to what Frederic has; in that given the tool set,
performance et al, it's certainly not the simplest viewer around, but
probably is the most powerful.
