xIFr - The better Exif viewer for your desktop browser

xIFr is a browser-extension to show EXIF, XMP and IPTC metadata from JPG images. Currently available to install in Firefox desktop browser.


Do you have a question, want to report an error or request a feature, or maybe post a review? You have the following channels to choose from:

Chrome, Edge,... ?

Even though xIFr is made as a "cross-platform webextension", Mozilla Addons are the only Addons-store xIFr currently is available from. There are limited support in Chrome, Edge and other Chromium browsers if installed from local storage, but Deep Search features requires an API-functionality currently only available in Firefox. Also recent versions of Chromium has introduced another problem that prevents current versions of xIFr (v2.0 as of writing), from reading images on many sites. The later should fixable by moving the part that reads image from "frontend" to "backend" of the extension. That can be done (I have it working), but introduces a new problem of sending the read image-data from "backend" to "frontend" where parsing currently is happening. I have it working in Firefox, but not in Chromium based browsers. It became a bit technical, but in conclusion I'm currently in doubth about the level of support I will be able to deliver for other browsers, even though the ambition was always to make xIFr more broadly available.

Open Source and Credits

xIFr is open source and built "on top of" other open source projects. I'm not an expert on binary fileformats or parsing of such, and without the core work done on that in the projects that xIFr has "inherited" from, xIFr wouldn't be. Thus big credits to the developers of wxIF and FxIF. And thanks for making the work available under licensing allowing new work to be build upon it.
