Criticism

Eye of GNOME has been criticized for its lack of GIF animation playback[1][2]; however, this functionality has been fixed and will be included in GNOME 2.29.

Also, it renders SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) as a rasterized bitmap by default.[3] This bitmap then gets manipulated when scaling the image, resulting in pixelation when zooming in.[4]
