my experience

This the most rated one on alternativeto but definitely the one I prefer. I just tried the install now and by default it suggest to add the ask toolbar and also to install extra software from other players.

Once the install is complete you can still not use it because you need to install a PDF converter. That's too much of a hassle and I ended up uninstalling it and going for doPDF7 which doesn't come with any extra unwanted so far.


Download it from ninite.com if you don't want bundleware
