I tried Damn Info Viewer and tried GetDiz. GetDiz seemed clearly better. Installed size is 0.7 MB. So small it is insignificant. How can the other reviewer make such a big deal out of saving 0.4 MB? I guess it is important to him, but I doubt it is important to 99% of us. GetDiz is also better than Notepad. I could not decide between 4 star - because it is just a text editor viewer or 5 star because it it the best free one I found.

Exactly what "more" do you need a viewer to do when you're just reading a text file? Make mine DAMN or notepad, this is way too bloated.

well...one point for being freeware
one point for some features like saving the file as .gif

but this tool won't beat DAMN .nfo-viewer, which installer is 263 KB only and takes 480 KB after installing.
see for yourself:

if you just want a smart tool for viewing .diz and .nfo, than DAMN nfo-viewer is the tool of first choice.

This program definitely works better than using notepad or word. The guy stating otherwise doesn't know what he is talking about. Its also a lot easier/less time to install this tiny program than it is to configure windows to use some other program where you end up having to configure the stupid fonts etc. I also prefer this one over the "damn" nfo viewer.

Hmmm...still a decent NFO viewer that includes decent fonts. That's what it does people, stop putting it down. Anyway, you can view NFO files perfectly in Notepad2...you just have to get the code folding version and edit the syntax scheme for ASCII art with a proper font and colours of your choice.

I'd still recommend DAMN NFO Viewer.

Careful! They've bundled this installer with Ask toolbar.

Jane is still a fantastic alternative.

Stylemessiah... How exactly do you get notepad to show ascii properly and also how do you make it convert web links so they are clickable?

Just two small reasons this "[email protected]" prefers this program over notepad.

Right click on .NFO file, choose Open with...
select either Notepad or WordPad

Doesnt cost a cent, anyone who is convinced they need a seperate program to view such files is a downright [email protected] and shouldnt be allowed to own a PC.

AkelPad or notepad++ even better viewers. Ctrl + or - can be used to change the font size.

I like NFO viewers, they're cool. This one is decent enough. Seems that these new features have been copied from jane though. jane is the best NFO viewer around.

There is NO need to have such a program!!! Just map those file extentions to any text viewer.
