I have a slow network connection over which I'm forwarding x11 over ssh.
I want to view images on the remote host (Ubuntu) quickly and efficiently.
I'm looking for an image viewer that will take into account the image viewer window's resolution and downsize the image before sending it over the network, instead of sending the full size image.
The images I want to view will be around 5MB and I only need to be able to browse through tiny thumbnails of the images to identify the image I'm looking for.
It is not necessary to be able to see more than one image at a time. Highest speed over slow network connection is the priority.
EDIT: It's possible that the way x11 forwarding works, only the image at the display resolution will be transferred anyway. If that's true, please confirm and the question still stands for which image viewer will be the fastest over a slow connection
