Pros & Cons:

Small file size, supports many file types.
Nothing obvious.

Our Review:

NFOPad allows foreground, background color, size and font options with a custom definable set for both NFO & TXT independently.

There is a nice alpha (opacity) setting with customizable blending. As stated even by the author, NFOPad resembles Microsoft Notepad with the extra support for .NFO files. There is also a nice control for URL & email integration allowing link clicking using the single click, double click or a CTRL click. Automatic association with .txt, .diz & .nfo files. Shell extensions allow for right-click Edit with NFOPad option.

A portable version of this product is available from the developer.
