There are browser plugins for TIFFs, but no free ones that I am aware of. For a stand-alone program, try IrfanView, a free, open source program.

The picture viewer that is installed by Quicktime displays TIF files just fine.

Question 1: What are the industry standard or, in your experience, good,
free products for viewing TIFFs?
Question 2: Has anyone had any experience using QuickTime in this
fashion? Due to some limitations (some users will access TIFFs on their
own computers, but others will be on library computers and will not be
able to install software at will), a plug-in - particularly a free,
well-known, well-supported one from a trusted source - would be
preferable. Thus, I am leaning toward QuickTime as the primary suggested
solution, but has anyone had bad experiences with it, or other reasons
why this would not be a good choice?
