Are you tired of Adobe Reader hogging almost 23MB of your disk space, always phoning home for updates, and not providing such swift performance? Make the switch to Foxit Reader, a willowy, 2.55MB download that's fast, free, and more versatile than Adobe's bloatware. For instance, with Foxit you can easily add bookmarks (providing the PDF's security settings allow it), import/export forms, and save the PDF forms you fill out.

Acrobat Reader has grown substantially in size over the years; in fact, the latest downloadable version is now over 16 megabytes in size! As a result, Acrobat takes it takes longer to launch a .PDF file for viewing.

Some of grear benefits of Foxit Reader are:

Breezing-fast: 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.
Annotation tool: Have you ever wished to annotate (or comment on) a PDF document when you are reading it? Foxit Reader 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.
Text converter: You may convert the whole PDF document into a simple text file.
High security and privacy: Foxit Reader highly respects the security and privacy of users and will never connect to the Internet without users' permission. While other PDF readers often silently connect to the Internet in the background. Foxit PDF Reader does not contain any spyware.

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.
