I don't like using browser mode unless I have a specific use for it, otherwise it just slows down the load up time for no purpose. I almost never use an image browser unless I'm doing major reorganizing of my images, otherwise I use xnview for image viewing/minor editting/conversion.
Well, I can completely agree to these explanations. Thanks!

With option "Launch Browser at Startup" the user has the choice about his Startup mode - so Support++ !
Drahken wrote:3) Changing the menu setup isn't just for this one thing. There are several thinmgs that move around or disappear in basic mode versus viewer mode, this was merely one example.
Yes, I've noticed that. Absolute useless mode.
Drahken wrote:4) To summarize about modes:
Xnview has 3 modes:
BASIC: If you do not have xnview set to launch browser at startup, or if you close the browser and all open images, you will wind up in basic mode. Basic mode really serves no purpose.
VIEWER: When you have opened an image to edit, view, or convert, you are in viewer mode.
BROWSER: For browsing images in a directory.
That's one to many! - Think I've mentioned that before.

I didn't say that it's easier. I just looked for a consistant way which almost any user will go intuitively.
