The technologically advanced program, DjVu Viewer Plug-In, offers users a unique opportunity to review high res .DjVu images and other media files in stunning high-resolution. Those involved in the graphic design or research fields find this lightweight and highly functionable program to be their ideal companion when reviewing images and documentation.

Purpose of DjVu Viewer Plug-In

The primary function of DjVu Viewer Plug-In is to provide computer users with an easy-to-use and lightweight program to view, save and store visual documents in their intended resolution. Oftentimes, browsers and other computer applications reduce the overall resolution and quality of media files to decrease download times.

Unlike similar applications, DjVu Viewer Plug-In does not run as a separate program; rather, it assists your personal Internet browser in displaying high-resolution images. Perhaps the most interesting and beneficial feature of this program is its size. While it is a powerhouse for graphic designers, and its 6.6 MB size downloads quickly and runs at the drop of a hat. This is an excellent feature given most graphic-oriented programs require substantially more disk space.

This image-enhance program is ideal for viewing:

  • Magazine Articles
  • Digital Images
  • Color-Heavy Documents
  • Highly Detailed Documents

Using the DjVu Viewer Plug-In

Since this program is technically a "plug-in" it's designed to work within certain applications, not alongside them. DjVu Viewer Plug-In works with the following Internet browsers:

  • Internet Explorer
  • Safari
  • Firefox

In future releases, it's suspected it will support more browsers, such as Google Chrome.

Along with working with select web browsers, DjVu Viewer Plug-In may be added to applications such as ActiveX, C++ and .NET programs.

Perhaps the biggest drawback the average computer user will find with this program is the lack of DjVu image files found throughout casual web browsing. While the everyday user may not find this plug-in extremely beneficial, it is necessary for graphic and visual designers.
