Adobe PDF Reader Alternative

PDF files are almost always read using the Adobe Reader.
The download is free, but it’s a huge file (16 Mb) and installation takes some time.
Also, if you click any pdf-file, it takes a while for the Adobe Reader to load, because it loads many plug-ins which you may not need.

Now there’s a great alternative to this.

It’s called Foxit and it’s small. The download size is less than 1 Mb, so it’s quick.

Foxit comes in a zip file. Just unzip it into a directory and double click the exe to run it.

I like this pdf reader very much (although at first it’s a bit strange to see Foxit instead of Adobe in your task bar).
Foxit is lightning fast, very easy to use and has almost all the features of the Adobe Reader.
Best of all, for me, is that it opens links in Firefox.

Foxit PDF Reader runs on Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP/2003.

Foxit also has an Editor for only 99 US$. I haven’t used it yet. Any comments on this one?
