The reason I don't like it is, my ATI driver does not support OpenGL
very well -- when I scale the window size, the content disappears.

I use xli for years. When I need to see an image which is not
supported by xli (like GIF), I use display command (ImageMagick). When
I need to see a lot of images (like a manga), I use comix -- it has
some special display modes designed for manga or book.
