I usually take raw and jpg at the same time, and when I view them in Fastone Image Viewer they both look exactly the same.

´╗┐It would make sense that ACR doesn't know exactly how the camera made a jpg out of the sensor information, but then again how could my image viewer do exactly this?

Faststone displays the JPEG preview embedded in the RAW file, it doesn't process the sensor data.
