Featuring a clean, well-organized interface, Stanza Desktop is expressly designed for reading digital publications, including electronic books, newspapers, PDFs, and general web content. Stanza Desktop is built from the ground up to make reading on your Macintosh or Windows laptop or desktop an enjoyable and hassle-free experience. It gives special attention to details that are usually overlooked in other software readers such as hyphenation, text columnation, automatic text scrolling, and user-friendly page and chapter navigation. Lengthy content that can be tedious to read using a web browser or PDF viewer is easy and natural with Stanza Desktop.

Stanza Desktop features built-in support for HTML, PDF, Microsoft Word, and Rich Text Format reading, as well as all the major eBook standards: unprotected Amazon Kindle and Mobipocket, Microsoft LIT, Palm doc, and the International Digital Publishing Forum's new epub Open eBook standard. In addition to supporting a plethora of formats, Stanza Desktop features an open API that allows developers to implement support for their own document formats. Stanza Desktop is more than just a reader: it is a reading platform!

It is very difficult to find a version of this marvellous electronic book–reading software on the old Lexcycle website, as it appears to have been hacked. Much nicer to use than Adobe Digital Editions and other Mac OS X epub software; one of the best e-readers ever!
