The best Light-weight pdf reader- foxit

Which software do you use for viewing/reading PDF files?

I stopped using Adobe’s Acrobat reader YEARS back. The last one I had on my system was 6.x I think.

Basically I avoid installing heavy, bloated and sometimes redundant software on my PC. It’s a universal truth that you cannot do without a PDF reader no matter which operating system you have. So if it’s not Abode, there has to be something else. When I run Linux, there’s built-in PDF reader and I dont know who developed it. But while on windows I had to look for alternative & Foxit PDF reader does a great job replacing giant Adobe. And the best part is it’s available for Linux and mobiles.

You can download the software directly for windows and get rid of Adobe, permanently! Once installed you’re promised it will not eat up your memory, space or CPU power in background. It’s a NO BLOAT software. (I drafted this post more than year ago but never get time to upload it & this time I check there website they’ve written same stuff about it- it’s a no bloat software… haha)This time when I check the website they’ve plety of PDF solutions to offer. It’s really great alternative to Adobe’s monopoly over PDF reader.
