      The accessibility of the commands is great, the most important features are free. I haven't felt the need to change to a third pdf viewer. Plus, you can print to PDF when many other software started eliminating this option.

      The UI is kludgy and looks like it belongs in the 1990's. Also, basic functionality now included in Adobe isn't (or at least not easily) found in Foxit. I love Foxit's products and have a Business user of theirs for years - so, this is really disappointing.
