Foxit Reader – A Free PDF Document Viewer
Are you tired of using Adobe’s Acrobat Reader because it’s slow and it needs a lot of time to open your PDF documents? Then you have to try Foxit Reader.
Foxit Reader is a free PDF document viewer which is MUCH faster then Adobe Acrobat Reader. Some features of Foxit Reader:
- Incredibly small: Foxit is just 2.55 MB while Acrobat Reader is about 25 MB!
- It’s fast: When you run Foxit Reader, it launches much faster! No splash windows displaying company logo, author names, etc.
- Annotation tool: You can annotate or comment on a PDF document when you are reading it. This option is only available in Acrobat Reader Pro version but Foxit Reader allows you to draw graphics, highlight text, type text and make notes on a PDF document and then print out or save the annotated document.
- Text converter: You may convert the whole PDF document into a simple text file.
- High security and privacy: While other PDF readers often silently connect to the Internet in the background without users permission, Foxit PDF Reader doesn’t do that.
- Tabbed Viewer: you can open several PDF’s in the same window, much like Firefox! Something which I really like!
Like I said, If you’re fed up with Acrobat Reader and you want to try something better, then you really should try Foxit Reader!
