Editors' Review

CHM Decoder takes the unpopular CHM file type, commonly used for Help files, and easily converts it to the more readable HTML. The program's simplicity is its biggest benefit, as it allows users of all skill levels to operate it.

The program's interface was simple for us to grasp; its major functions were divided into three tabs. Oddly, this program designed to convert Help files didn't contain one of its own. The three-step process was very intuitive, requiring us to locate the CHM file in question, select a destination for it, and simply convert it. We tested the program with a large file and were pleased that it took fewer than 20 seconds to convert. While the converted file was saved in its new destination, it also opened our Web browser and displayed the Help file in its entirety. This was the best way to view the file because the saved HTML file seemed to have broken each page into its own file, which was a pain to view. The program's best feature was a tab that detailed the size and built-in files of the conversion. It wasn't essential to our process and wasn't really necessary. However, this didn't take away from the smooth conversion and readability of the program.

CHM Decoder is a freeware program. It comes as a compressed file. We recommend this program because of its fast, simple conversion.
