Foxit Reader 2.3.2822


Recommended Posts

FoxItReader.pngFoxit Reader is a free PDF document viewer and printer, with incredible small size, breezing-fast launch speed and amazingly rich feature set. In the past, you have to download a huge PDF Reader from another software company, go through a lengthy installation process and wait for an annoying splash window to disappear just to open a PDF document. Moreover, if you want to annotate a PDF document, you have to pay US$299 to buy that certain PDF software.

I like SumatraPDF.. Even lighter, free, around 1 meg.. Of course it's much less advanced, but I just read pdfs, don't need any advanced functions..
