    My machine open tiffs within windows, but not within a web browser (any)

    Any thoughts?

  2. TIFF files are not going to be supported by any browser, as they were never
    intended for the web, and are completely unsuitable to be used in that way.

    TIFF is used by graphics and design professionals as a cross-platform
    lossless format, and has little compression available. I occassionally
    receive files from colleagues as tiffs, but I use them most often as it is
    the format I use for making scans.
