Icarus is a novel genome visualizer for accurate assessment and analysis of genomic draft assemblies, which is based on QUAST genome quality assessment tool. Icarus consists of two major contig viewers:
 
You can try Icarus online at http://quast.bioinf.spbau.ru/ -- upload your assemblies, get regular QUAST report and press the Icarus: contig browser link.
 
Icarus is distributed as a command-line tool within QUAST package since version 4.0.
