Best images management and browser app

This is by far the most functional app I have ever used as a Mac user for a decade. The finder plugin allows you to preview images of the archive without even open it (by creating a thumbnail to the archive file), or preview the first few images of the archive by pressing space bar (quick look). Great for manage lots of archives. The library management tool also allows you to have a sneak peek into the images of folders without even click in, handy. The image/archive viewer is also handy and has basically all the functions you need to enjoy browsing images or comic. Now can’t wait to use Mojave’s dark mode and see how EdgeView applies to it :) Great work Han!

Best App for generating Thumbnails for .cbr, .cbz files

On Catalina, this App will generate Thumbnails reliably for .cbr and .cbz (also for .zip .rar files) correctly and reliably. If you are having problems with that feature with Catalina, then get this App.

The best image/Comic viewer in macOS!

So fast and fluent, and additional web streaming feature is very convenient and stable.

If Comicglass is the best in iOS, Edgeview2 would be the best in macOS.

I personally believe that there’s no substitute in Windows.

Also, the developper is very devoted, feedbacks are very fast.

If you enjoy watching comics in macOS, this will be your best choice :)
