Pros & Cons:

Extremely small file size, very fast.
No extra bells and whistles, website link is broken.

Our Review:

DIZzy is a simple viewer of DIZ, NFO and generic ASCII files that requires no installation.

From the look of the website it has been abandoned, even the link from the official application leads to a dead domain. However, the link to the author's site is still active and DIZzy is still available for download.

It provides a simple Drag and Drop system to open the NFO files and has no configurable options. They four buttons present on the menu bar include the non-working website, an about page which opens on a separate NFO style page, Start which brings the slider to the top of the page, and End which takes you to the bottom of the NFO.

The program is portable and there is no automatic file association available.


Official Description

DIZzy displays DIZ, NFO and other confusing, ASCII-extended text files in a pleasing graphic format. It supports drag-and-drop, file associations and command line. DIZzy is an amazingly small, self-contained, flexible and free program.
