STDU Viewer

Editors' Review

by   / September 01, 2010

New document file formats are always cropping up, and on the whole that's a good thing; specialized formats reflect evolving technology. The only real drawback is that in order to make use of these new formats, you often need viewers or players that you don't already have. And who wants a hard drive crammed with software that can only do one thing? STDU Viewer attempts to solve this problem by letting you view a variety of file formats all in one simple program.

STDU Viewer's interface is plain and looks a lot like other document viewers, with a main display pane, a few menus, and a toolbar. It's very much like a basic PDF viewer, but in addition to PDF files it can also handle TIFF, DjVu, text files, Open XML Paper Specification, Comic Book Archive files, JBIG2 files, and a variety of image formats. The program supports bookmarking and has a handful of other basic features, including text and image selection, zooming, full-screen views, and the ability to search within documents. Although for the most part the program is quite intuitive and will be familiar to anyone who's used a document viewer before, we do wish that the program came with a Help file. Overall, STDU Viewer didn't knock our socks off, but it is a nice choice for people who need to view some of the less-common document formats that aren't supported by the average document viewer.

STDU Viewer installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to everyone.
