If you want to open, read, and print PDF files, you can grab Adobe's Acrobat Reader application for free from their website. It's a free download, so why would you look anywhere else?

Well for starters, Adobe Reader is huge. And slow. And complicated. If you want to read PDFs rather than take care of a big program, take a look at Foxit Reader. It's small, fast, and has an impressive feature set. It's compatible with version 1.7 of the PDF standard, so you can read the latest and greatest documents. Its built-in annotation tool lets you mark-up your files, something that you can't do for free with the "official" tool. It's also easy to convert entire PDFs into text files, which can be helpful when you need to use the content for other purposes.

Foxit Reader is a Windows application. It supports Windows 2000 and later.

    I have downloaded this program a couple of months ago and I’m very happy with it. It’s quick, it does what it’s designed for and it’s easy to use. And, above all, it’s free! What more could we want? 😉
