Multiple threaded execution and a proprietary virtual memory scheme form the foundation for Jade 1.2, one of the most versatile JPEG viewers available for the Macintosh. By utilizing these unique features, Jade can view JPEGs with amazing speed while maintaining a small memory footprint.

Unlike most other Mac JPEG viewers, Jade uses the cross platform JPEG library supplied by the Independent JPEG Group and as a consequence is much more tolerant of corrupted JPEGs. In addition, it allows Jade to view images at full size and allows Jade to support the latest JPEG features (like Progressive JPEG encoding).

To top it off, Jade goes beyond traditional image viewers, allowing users to route images to multiple folders or applications on the fly.
