Nice tool. Should accept copy&pasted JSON-Data too.
Would be even better, if it could produce JSON classes for C#, VB.NET from the JSON data.

CSVfileView v2.20 released as of 23-SEP-2015

Changelog

* Version 2.20:
o Added 'Display Filter' option (F2). The display filter is
somewhat similar to the SQL WHERE clause, for example... The
following filter will instruct CSVFileView to display only lines with
'Yes' value in the Connected column and the 'Device Name' column
contains a 'USB' string:
Connected = 'Yes' AND 'Device Name' CONTAINS 'USB'
o Added 'Load Filter' option to the 'Advanced Open' window. It's
similar to the 'Display Filter' feature, but instead of filtering the
file after it's already loaded , the load filter skip items during
the loading process, so the file will be loaded faster and
CSVFileView will consume less memory.
o Added 'First line contains column names' and 'Automatically
detect the delimiter and quotes characters' options to the 'Advanced
Open' window.
o Added /aload command-line option, for loading a file according to
the 'Advanced Open' settings.
o You can now specify any variable inside the CSVFileView.cfg file
as a command-line parameter, for example... In order to turn off the
'First Line Contains Column Names' option:
CSVFileView.exe /FirstLineColumnNames 0

Recently found my self needing to view and edit some csv files, so naturally came here first looking for a solution, I first tried CSVFileView by Nirsoft as it was the highest rated one, but found that to be incredibly laggy with even small files, and you can forget anything big. This one on the other hand ran like a champ, a big thumbs up from me. The only grip I have with this is there are no way to highlight entire rows or columns, which can make keeping track of things a bit hard if your scrolling a lot.

__philippe on 2015-05-19 21:18

For its fast processing of large files, ability to highlight selected rows, and more advanced features (remove duplicates, split/join columns, searches...), give a shot to CSVed as well.

I gave CSVed a try as well, and it feels even more sluggish then CSVFileView, maybe it's just the files I'm using, there about 200-300KB's in size with a few 700~KB's ones.

From http://lenmus.blogspot.com.es/2014/07/lenmus-reaches-its-end.html:

"It is with my deepest regret that I have to announce the closure of the LenMus project.After a decade-long run, LenMus is no longer being developed. I began LenMus because I was studying music theory and needed interactive exercises for practicing. At that time (2002) there were no much free software for musicians and music students and I programmed some exercises, especially for ear training. I was soon attracted by the computational problems derived from the complexity of this domain. But world changes very fast and I alone can not do all and move as fast as this requires. I always failed in attracting more developers to the project and the result is that LenMus is increasingly lagging behind the increasing complexity of the project and the fast pace of changes on computers (notebooks, mobile phones), the web (HTML5 interactive applications), and the available teaching materials on the web (videos, free web schools). As I can not do it all alone, all development was stopped five months ago. Probably I will not to resume development again."

DMcsvEditor

This is a very poor excuse for a CSV utility..:-(

Takes ages (25 sec) to load a 2,000 rows csv file
Colum sort does get stuck, etc..
....and the current download link is broken anyway, probably for the better
(Softpedia still maintains a working link to the culprit, would anyone really insist...)

My advice: stay well clear of DMcsvEditor, and stick with the real McCoy's instead :
