Foxit Reader – Replacement for Acrobat Reader

Posted in Links, Software, Technology by engtech on April 17, 2006

Small, Fast, Clean, and FREE PDF Reader for Everyday Use
One of my least favorite pieces of software to use is Acrobat Reader because it has such a huge memory footprint, the automatic updating is annoying and attempts to install Yahoo! Toolbar can be a pain. I'll use FoxIt Reader instead. When having several reference PDFs is a necessary part of your daily grind, switching to FoxIt can make a huge difference in memory consumption on your machine.

Foxit Reader is small (the download is less than 1MB), so it downloads quickly. It doesn't need any installation, so you can start to run it as soon as you've downloaded it.

And It starts up immediately, so you don't need to wait for an annoying "Welcome" screen to disappear.

Foxit Reader is extremely easy to use, just double click it to start and then click open button to open your PDF document. If you want to print, click on "Print" button. If you want to change the page layout for printing, select "Print Setup" from "File" menu.

Foxit Reader runs on Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP/2003. It is provided by Foxit Software Company free for non-commercial use.

    This sounds to good to be true. But I shall D/L it and let you know how it goes. Also thanks for the small, cheap utility.
