After having some troubles with Adobe Reader opening anything or taking way to long to open I decided to install and try this out. Perfect.


Yea, it's ok. But i think Sumatran PDF is even better. At least if you just want basic "read" capabilities.


I've always found Foxit Reader and Sumatra PDF to be a bit of an eyesore. The user interface isn't the prettiest in the world. Adobe Reader looks far more slick. Foxit does a better job of reading PDFs for me than Adobe, but hey, I don't read PDFs that often anyways.


I like Foxit Reader because it's good enough and available as portable version (via portableapps.com), so I can carry it on USB stick along with other "swiss-knife" software.


Foxit Reader, like a lot of other softwares, asks you if you want to change your homepage and install a toolbar: if you don't want them, all you have to do is uncheck those options in setup.


ADWARE ALERT : It installs an adware toolbar into your browser.


I absolutely love this program. I'm a student, and a lot of articles/books I need to read are in .pdf. Gave it a try after finding it here as an alternative to Adobe, which was getting far too large, had such a slow and ugly layout, and limited functions I wanted to paid versions. I've recommended this to everyone I know and will never go back.


The Fox It Reader installer changed my default home page despite being told not too. This softwares' installer relentlessly attempts to install a Search Toolbar by displaying a deceitful EULA agreement look-a-like screen. NOT RECOMMENDED for most users.


light and faster than Adobe reader, allows to add comments to PDFs
