Foxit Reader
« on: July 06, 2007, 09:22:15 AM »

This is a very small programme, for Windows users,  an alternative to the huge Acrobat Reader ..it's fast, AND it's free  !!

Just downloaded this and had a go.

Impressed so far it really is very quick to open pdf docs. 
I must admit I often get fed up at how long adobe takes to open.

Good find - thanks.

I have been using it for some time now, and likewise find it excellent for PDF files, okay, it may not have all the whistles and bells that Acrobat may have, but lets face it, probably 99.9% of the time all we want to do is read a document.

And as you say, Fast, Small and runs from the folder which I find strange because it's still found when clicking on a PDF file. Maybe it's in the registry from the first time it's looked at?

Thanks for the reminder as newcomers may not see or find the original recommendation from Chris.

Aha but it was his suggestion to me, not to you, so you are off the hook, "unless our palms are not crossed with silver that is"  :lol:
