.AZW — is an ebook file format developed by Amazon for their own ebook reader Kindle. This format reads ebooks that are protected by DRM (digital rights management) and this protection is the only difference between AZW and MOBI.
When AZW is just a file format for textbooks, AZW3 supports much more features. It supports CSS3, HTML5, and many other contemporary ebook facilities, and as well as regular AZW it requires DRM.
It is an ebook file format for so-called «Print Replicas». Of course, it can be used only by Amazon Kindle and usually (always) includes DRM.
CBZ is a comic ebook file format, containing an image structured on a page. Storage as a compressed archive using ZIP compression. Similar to the CBR extension file, which uses RAR compression.
The CBR format is used to store and display comic ebooks, or other sets of pages. Internally the file format is using a compressed set of JPEG, PNG, or static GIF images that are stored in a separate archive. Pages are automatically structured and can be displayed one or two at a time.
CBC is a container format used by Calibre (a free software used to convert ebooks), which can contain several CBZ and CBR files and also a text file called "comics.txt" in UTF-8 encoding. The text file contains a list of all files included in the archive. The CBC archive can be automatically converted to an ebook in Calibre.

The DjVu file format is designed for storing and viewing scanned books, magazines, catalogs, documents, scientific materials, and other images. Although the DjVu format is compressed, it allows you to save high-resolution images in small files. The extension is often used to scan texts with an abundance of components that are heavy for recognition: formulas, schemes, sketches, tables. For scanning texts that are not oriented to recognition: manuscripts, parchments, and other historical documents, or to digitize books and publish them in a web interface.
The DOCX file extension is used to open text files in Microsoft Office 2007 or newer. This is the successor to the old version of DOC, which can still be opened through applications that support DOCX. However, to view files saved with the DOCX extension in older applications (MS Word versions 2000, 2002, and 2003), it is recommended to install a compatibility package necessary for working not only with DOCX but also with DOCM.

All HTML files can also link to other data types - such as video, CSS, or JS files. Any web browser will open and correctly display all kinds of HTML files. In other words, opening one of these documents in a browser will decrypt what is written in the HTML file.
HTMLZ stands for ZIP compressed HTML files. May contain one or several HTML files, images for them, and a «metadata» file which is used to package all included files into one system.

They will look the same from any device. These files actually store fonts and electronic formatting between different platforms and appear on the screen just as if they were printed on paper.
