Foxit Reader (PDF Viewer)

I’ve been using the free Foxit Readerfor several months now, relying upon it in places where previouslyI’d rely on Adobe’s AcrobatReader (I believe they now call it simply “AdobeReader”).

While Adobe makes some fantastic software, Adobe Readerdistracts from the actual documents by endlessly making attentiondemands, and you’re eternally aware whenever it plays a part. Italso tended to be very heavy on resources, with activities likescrolling through PDFs being a tremendously laboriousprocess. Not to mention that Adobe Reader was responsible forquite a few browser hang-ups.

Foxit, by comparison, is extremely lightweight, and it managesto smoothly navigates through PDFs with ease. Great littleproduct.
