I do like both Tiger and Leopard, but there is one thing I miss a lot in Tiger is Quicklook (in fact, the only thing...).
I use to browse through lot of images, and Quicklook is so easy for that.
Anyone know a utility for Tiger that would copy this feature, or at least something a bit similar ?

Take a look at FinderPop. http://www.finderpop.com/

It's a contextual menu thing, meaning you'll have to click on an item then scroll through the menu to find the Preview option. So, it's not as easy as Quicklook. But it will show you a file preview.

There's another one I used to use that was solely a preview type deal (without all the other FinderPop stuff). I'll see if I can find it.

EDIT1: There you go. FolderGlance: http://www.scsc.no/products/folderglance/
Ah sorry. It appears they removed version 2.0 to 3.0 because those used to be free.
Try this link to version 2: http://www.cs.uit.no/~daniels/YLS/FolderGlance.dmg.zip
Well, bummer. It seems they have expunged everything before version 2.1 off the net. I probably have it backed up somewhere but I can't get to it easily.
EDIT2: Also, File Buddy: https://www.techspot.com/downloads/2469-file-buddy--for-mac.html

There's MacGizmo, which isn't freeware ($10) but worth checking out. The company still sells a Universal version.

Yes FinderPop is good, I use that on macOS9. But indeed it's works with contextual menus.
Gosh, didn't know FileBuddy has THAT Many options :)
MacGizmo is the more QuickLook like , Opt-select let you see a preview of an image.

Thanks a lot Sirs !
