[PNG icon] Browsers with PNG Support

The Web, of course, was one of the main targets for PNG support since progressive display is so important to those browsing over a low-speed link (like Greg). GIF's interlacing scheme isn't very good, and JPEG's progressive mode is still catching on; PNG's seven-pass, two-dimensional scheme was designed to fill this gap. Likewise, PNG's alpha-channel support (including ``RGBA palettes'') and support for automatic gamma correction are particularly useful on the Web. This page lists standard 2D browsers; see the appropriate pages for listings of VRML browsers and other 3D applications.

As with the other applications pages, links to home WWW sites or to downloadable versions are provided where known, but if a link is broken, check the location and see if an updated version is available (and please tell Greg!). Relevant operating systems or platforms are printed in (parenthesized italics).


These are listed alphabetically, more or less:
