I found that a very bad idea, for me will be a nightmare wait Gimp to load 
anytime i want open a jpg or a imagine file

But if is that you want is easy
if you use Windows:
you just have to RIGHT click on one of that imagines,as example one of your 
jpg, and from the dropdown menu that will pop out click "open with"

You will be prompted to chose a program from a list or chose or from your 
programs files 

chose gimp-remote.exe NOT gimp exe, or you will open a new instance of gimp for 
any imagine you will click

Then if you want associate other kind of imagines (png, tiff,bmp) just repeat 
that. with a png a tiff and so on

Now that i explain how to do i will suggest you to DO NOT DO it.
Gimp is a imagine editor, To browse images and apply basic correction to the 
whole imagine on the fly is not only a overkill, just is not the right tool.

Something as Xnview, irfanview, and a step below Picasa is what is needed to 
browse and if needed to crop, correct contrast,saturation,gamma ,convert to 
other file formats ..and more on the fly.

Gimp come in play when,as example, you want correct contrast (saturation 
luminosity..) on a SELECTED area of the image, or you need to work with 
layers,layermasks,  colours channels, use the clone tool or similar or more 
complex tasks

To browse images Gimp is not too handy,
could be adapted for simple batch corrections but that require install extra 
plugin or script

Both xnview and irfanview may do batch process out of the box and all basic 
correction you may imagine often even in automatic mode.(automatic 
contrast,automatic level, equalization....)

Gimp is for more advanced works, can do also that basic things ,of course,but 
since are simple things will not do "better" only more slowly(more slowly 
working with several images...time will be the same on a single pic,but then 
pass to the next to edit will be quite more slow)

What Gimp will do much better is real imagine editing, where may be needed 
lmanipulation of layers, layermask,create complex selections,feather
