The new DC update gave the ever heavy and bloated adobe reader an idiotic interface. The menu bar and side bar took up too much of my screen.

It's really not that big or bloated for what it does, but the weekly updates drive me insane.

Adobe Reader functions more smoothly and renders more accurately than any of the clones I have tried. I've never noticed this "bloat" that everyone complains about.

Kinda slow, but will render everything properly unlike Foxit. Also the UI is much better since v8.

Adobe is garbage. Always has been slow and buggy. Use a quality open source alternative like Evince, Sumatra, or Okular. I guess you could use Foxit if you want adware.

Honestly, I can't see any reason to use Adobe Reader anymore, at least on Windows or Linux. If you want a free program for reading pdfs, Foxit Reader is not only faster but also let's you highlight and annotate the text with ease. Adobe Reader doesn't provide any editing tools: you have to pay boatloads for Adobe Professional if you want that.

The Linux version of Foxit still needs a ton of work, but you can just use the Windows version through Wine instead. Works just fine.

I didn't realize until a few days ago that this can open and view .ai files from Adobe Illustrator. Should be added as an alternative for that.

Its nice and has some nice features, like copying an image or test from the pdf, but for me it was always too slow. I could load up a pdf faster in just about any other program, so I dont use this anymore. It works ok, but just is not that good anymore.
