Editors' Review

Free Opener opens a large variety of files without any hassle. There's nothing more annoying than trying to open a file, only to find that you don't have the right program on hand to do the job. We rarely keep the applications we review, but this is one that we plan on keeping around for personal use.

The program has a very simple user interface, with only three menu options: File, Edit, and Help. Using the File menu, we were able to browse for and select different files to view in the large window. One by one, we opened PDF, AVI, XLS, and HTML files without any trouble whatsoever. No matter what file we chose, each one opened clearly and effortlessly in the window. In terms of help, the About feature gives a listing of the numerous file types that are supported by the program. Another link sends you to the program's Web site, where you can access FAQs. The Preferences menu doesn't offer much, just the option to change the skin of the interface, but we can't complain because the program performed perfectly. Free Opener has one job, and it does it well.

The program installs and uninstalls cleanly.
