What are my options for a viewer for Microsoft Help "CHM" (aka Compiled HTML) files on Mac OS X? I'd like to use a more recent program than Chmox, which was last updated on February 5th, 2005.

Thanks a lot! It is like heaven after xChm. – Özgür Apr 9 '11 at 11:18

I've used Tubby (version 0.6.3, updated 2006, Bluecouch Software), Chimp (version 1.1, updated 2005, Sphera Software), and xchm (version 1.13, updated 2007, GPL).

Yes, they're all somewhat obsolete, and I wasn't happy with any of them.

Instead, I now use calibre (version 0.7.15, Kovid Goyal, updated August 2010). Calibre will import my chm files and export them as PDFs, which I find much more usable.

This is not a CHM Reader. pity I can't vote it down :( vote me up so that I can vote you down! – Özgür Apr 9 '11 at 11:17

"CHM Viewer Free" is quite good. Rated 4+ on the Mac App Store.

Version 5.1.0 is from 2013.

Features tabs, bookmarks, fullscreen, search on page and in whole file, and more.
