GTKWave is a great open source software for viewing and analyzing VCD (Value Change Dump) files. It's easy to use and the user interface is very intuitive. The program can display waveforms from multiple VCD files at once. It also has features such as auto-scaling and zoom. The highlighting of signals and setting of bookmarks make it easier to analyze the waveforms. The program can also save and export the waveforms in a variety of formats. The support for multiple languages is also a great addition!
