Open the fb2 format

When surfing the Internet, you may come to this question: “How to open fb2?”. But really, why open such an extraordinary format?
Well, let’s take turns.

FictionBook – a format for representing electronic versions of books in the form of XML documents, where each element of the book is described by its own tags. The standard is designed to provide compatibility with any device and format. XML makes it easy to create documents that are ready for direct use and software processing (conversion, storage, management) in absolutely any environment. The main goal of supporters of storing books in the FictionBook format is to clearly store the structure of the book with the ability to easily convert (including automated) a FictionBook format file to other popular formats: rtf, rb, isilo3.pdb, etc.
All this serves the convenience of reading.

Along the way, one more goal is achieved: on the basis of the data stored inside the FictionBook file, with extraordinary ease, you can build a repository of books of any scale: both at home and for public use (network library).

Such storage will require much less processing time than any other way of storing books. Documents, usually with the extension .fb2, may contain structural markup of the main elements of the text, some information about the book, and may also contain attachments with binary files, which can store illustrations or cover art.

So how do you open it? Consider the most popular programs for opening this extension.

Programs for reading FB2 format:
FBReader is a free e-book reader for both desktops (Windows and GNU / Linux), and for PDAs based on GNU / Linux. Supported extension formats include FB2.
