I happened to know about “Foxit Reader 2.0“; an incredibly small sized PDF reader from Mr.Vadivel’s blog. In his post he had explained about the reason of migration through some of the disadvantages of the commonly used Adobe PDF reader. And I decided just to test this new one. But WOW! For my surprise it took no time for the installation!!! One sec?? Naa.. 🙂
Its has some good features too. Lets check some of them taken from their official site.
- The download size of Foxit Reader is only 1.5 M which is a fraction of Acrobat Reader 20 M size
- When you run Foxit Reader, it launches instantly without any delay. You are not forced to view an annoying splash window displaying company logo, author names, etc.
- Have you ever wished to annotate (or comment on) a PDF document when you are reading it? Foxit Reader 2.0 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.
- You may convert the whole PDF document into a simple text file.
- Foxit Reader highly respects the security and privacy of users and will never connect to Internet without users’ permission. While other PDF Reader often silently connects to the Internet in the background. Foxit PDF Reader does not contain any spyware or adware.
