Foxit PDF Reader is a compact PDF viewer and reader offering an alternative to Adobe Acrobat. To begin with, Foxit PDF Reader opens large PDF files faster than the standard viewer from Adobe. The user interface is similar that of Adobe Reader, with no major differences to get used to.
The toolbar includes common features such as the ability to print PDF documents directly, to send as an E-Mail attachment, to enlarge the text, to reduce or to rotate. Foxit Reader’s comment function lets you add explanations or comments. An integrated converter allows you to convert simple text files into PDFs. Another handy feature is a screenshot function, which deposits a selected section of the file into the Clipboard, allowing you to paste it into a graphics program as an image file.
An overview of all changes can be found on the homepage of the developer.
Foxit PDF reader is a free, sleek and fast software for viewing PDF files. Those looking for a less memory-intensive alternative to Adobe Reader would be well advised to try this program.
