Sometimes I want to look quickly at a large number of SVG files. My options seem to be Inkscape, which is rather ponderous and slow to open, or a browser, which is unsatisfactory for other reasons. Is there a tool that does nothing but display (not edit) SVG images?

You have quite the diverse range of options:


Gapplin (AppStore) 14MB

macSVG 9MB

macSVG is a MIT-licensed open-source macOS application for designing and editing Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) content for HTML5 web pages, mobile apps, animation design, and general graphics usage.

I saw this question pretty late. Another option is to use svg-edit It is browser based, and you can download the entire application and runs in your web browser.

They also have an online version. see SVG editor
