Tested the viewer and removed it.
SLister plugin together with SumatraPDF displays EPUBs better, faster
and has more functions.

I did not know that SumatraPDF supports epub.
Maybe I am too hurried.

Now I compared two plugins, so:

SumatraPDF always displays the contents on the virtual pages, showing the empty grey fields from both sides, EPUB Lister displays the text on the entire width of the lister.
In this case EPUB Lister is better because you need to scroll less.

EPUB Lister displays text with current epub's CSS.
e.g. EL displays various font sizes with correct embedded fonts (font name) and font colors in a single document.
(SumatraPDF - renders all text with the same font, font size and font color), displays list elements (list-style-type: disc etc) (sumatraPDF does not display list elements).

Sumatra does not support CSS at all, btw.

sumatraPDF - removes empty lines in some cases.
EPUB Lister leaves empty lines (strict to current css). So reading is easier.


But Sumatra loads EPUB faster and it has more features (search, fast zoom, bookmarks and content, export etc..).
Therefore, I have decided not to waste time on epub lister viewer plugin further developments.

Hi,
Would you try to add more fields example "contributor"?
Many thanks!

Can you add something like "Plain text size" for fb2, which will calculate number of unicode codepoints in (main text part + references) without metadata parts? May be it should be on-demand calculation

Rationale:
Often it is usefully to know text size (approximately), for txt it was just file size (for 1 byte encodings) but for fb2 huge part of file is base64 encoded cover and/or another pictures, fb2 tags, etc. Also typical fb2 encoding is UTF-8 - so it's problematically to evaluate text length without opening file
