CHM Reader Pro

CHM Reader Pro 1.0

Free
This program enables you to view the contents of your CHM files.
 
1.0.2 (See all)

As you probably guessed it, this application allows you to read the contents of CHM files on your computer. The program provides you with a very intuitive interface, brings you an efficient search tool, lets you print CHM files directly from its main window, and much more.

After you select the CHM file you wish to read you can zoom the text in, search words or phrases within the document, and even add bookmarks to the file. This Mac utility features continuous reading mode, hence you can use your mouse scroll or arrow keys to navigate through the CHM file.

Personally, I wasn't too happy about the output quality when it came to converting CHM documents to PDF format. The program failed to preserve the original layout of the input file.

Moreover, the application immediately shut down once the conversion process was complete.

All in all, I'd say you can find better solutions for viewing and converting CHM files on your Mac. Even though the application is free of charge, I still can't ignore the fact that it brings the aforementioned flaws.
