    (Linux version) Very good reader, especially support of DOC format. The weak point is an interface customizing, such as inability to hide all control elements in fullscreen mode, setting up own hotkeys and textures.

    I have to give this a low mark due to limited functionality. If you open an e-Book, you cannot simply close it to open a different eBook. You must close Cool Reader, reopen Cool Reader and select a different eBook. When you select a drive letter to navigate, there is no vertical scroll bar to enable one the ability to scroll down the folder list and thereby select a specific folder. It appears that the author presumes that there will be only a short list of folders. It is not possible to change the e-book folder, again, the author assumes that all ones e-books will be located in the user/download folder and disregards users who set up their systems in a logical, efficient way that enables them to work better.
