What is a CBR file?

A CBR file is a compressed set of .JPEG, .PNG, or static .GIF images saved in a single .RAR archive with the ".cbr" extension. It contains pages that are automatically ordered and can be presented one or two at a time. CBR files are used for storing and displaying comic books or other collections of pages.

More Information

A file decompression utility that supports the RAR format may be able to decompress CBR files and extract the images. However, they will not be displayed in a book format and will not necessarily be in the correct order.

NOTE: The Komik Reader application for Android is available for free or purchase.

Open and view .CBR files with File Viewer Plus.
