Is there a free vector image viewer/previewer for Mac?

I need to be able to view .svg, .eps and .ai files to help categorize/sort them for work, but don't have Adobe Illustrator on this computer.

You can view SVG graphics with any recent major browser. Also, Adobe offers an SVG Viewer for OS X, but it has been EOL since 2009.

There's an EPS plugin for Quick Look, which would allow you to "peek" into EPS files.

I think the only real alternative to Adobe Illustrator is Inkscape, the popular free and open source vector graphics application. Its interface isn't that pretty though, because it's still using X11/XQuartz.

Still, you should be able to open any vector graphics with it, even Illustrator files.
