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 
Everyone has there favorite image viewer. My own is (free) FastStone Image Viewer. You can set it as the "owner" of common image formats then in Settings-Programs set program to "gimp-win-remote" (browse to it in your Program Filers/Gimp folder) then set parameters to : gimp-2.4.exe (filename)

Now when ever an image is displayed in FastStone keyboard "E" will open the file in Gimp (starting Gimp if its not yet open)
