In the past, you've had to download a huge PDF reader from another software company, go through a lengthy installation process and wait for an annoying splash window to disappear just to open a PDF document. Moreover, if you want to annotate a PDF document, you have to pay US$299 to buy certain software. Now with Foxit Reader, you don't have to endure such pain any more.

Foxit Reader itself is free. The critical add-ons are free while advanced add-ons have a reasonable cost.

You can use the following functions for free:
* View or print PDF document
* Basic PDF form operations i.e. filling out PDF forms and printing them out
* Advanced PDF form operations, such as saving filled-out forms and import/export forms, free for personal usage only
* View PDF as text
* Critical add-ons, such as UI language package, JPEG2000/JBIG decoder, CJK package, GDI+ for early Windows version, etc.

Илья Пацев Great software, and I loved it, but they changed the GUI and it is a major change. This made the experience worse for me personally. The way that highlighting worked before (ver 6) was perfect, and it was the most important single feature I use for my schoolwork. With version 7.1.5.425 I just want to roll back to version 6, or find alternative suite.

Md. Sayem Shahriar While there is slow performance reading a document in Adobe Reader, this one I found useful.
