Alternatives to Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for all platforms with Open Source License

  • SumatraPDF

    Sumatra PDF is a slim, free, open-source PDF/DjVu/EPUB/XPS/CHM/CBR/CBZ/MOBI/FB2 viewer for Windows. Why another PDF reader? Sumatra has a minimalistic design. Simplicity has a higher priority than a lot of features. Its small and starts up very fast. Its designed for portable use: its just one file with no external dependencies so you can easily run it from external USB drive.

    • Sumatra PDF is lightweight, stable and user-friendly, as well as being completely free. It doesn't include the entire feature set of some of the other popular PDF readers, such as form fill, but does have some features that others don't, such as a tabbed interface. I highly recommend.
