I'd like to read a moderately big HTML file - about 3M. Another option is to have it split in several interlinked HTMLs.

Cool reader is the closest. Though it:

  • either crashes/gets out of memory, I don't know, on certain pages of 3M HTML file (3M not that much, actually, for a 50M free memory).
  • or doesn't support links to files lying in the same directory/zip file (in a form: a href="file.html#anchor")

Are there any other options around?

Have you tried converting this HTML file to a compatible eBook reader friendly format like ePub or plain text? You can use Calibre on your PC to convert the HTML file. – Sparx Apr 14 '11 at 13:53

You could try using the default Android browser. Open the browser, in the address bar enter: file://sdcard/file.html (replace the part after sdcard/ with whatever path leads to your file). You can then bookmark the file and open it later in the browser without having to re-type the address. However, trying to make a "bookmark shortcut" or using the HTC bookmark widget will not work for local files.

After testing several browsers (Dolphin, Firefox, Opera) and Readers (Moon+) mentioned in similar questions here, only

Offline Browser

seems to do the Job of reading interlinked offline .html/.htm files correctly.

Moon+ Reader has the ability to view HTML files - not the code, mind you, just the rendered part. It's an eBook reader and is available in both free and paid versions.

Nice reader! Like it, but for the interlinked offline htm books it doesn't work, unfortunately. – Hauser Dec 2 '11 at 14:37
