Today, I come across an wonderful Blu-ray playing software. The F2Fsoft Bluray player can play Blu-ray folder, Blu-ray disc, Blu-ray iso files, different types of DVD and normal videos on TV, PC and PS3. It is powerful but easy-use software. Today, I will share you how to play Blu ray with this player software.

This used to be my favorite pdf reader years ago. But now it sucks. It has big installation file, without any lite version. They installed a lot of unnecessary stuffs into your laptop, namely:
-language proofing tools
-pdf creator
-pdf printer
-browser plugins
-microsoft office plugins
-cloud service
The latter one being the most evil, because we can't opt out. I am pretty sure I ticked the disable check box. But the service is still running. What makes them think I want to store my files in their server? I am very disappointed!

This used to be my favorite reader, but I moved away from it when they started adding a lot of unnecessary (to me) stuff. One of the things I liked about foxit was its lightness and no-frills approach to reading pdfs. Sadly Foxit is following Adobe down the bloated reader road. Sad.I can't give it more than a mediocre rating.

Older versions are light and improve pdf performance.
Anyway better than acrobat yet.

I went to oldapps.com and found Foxit 5.3 For me it's just fine. I don't like or need all of the junk on the newer versions, as my PDF nedds are simple.

Foxit Reader: once a lightweight and non-intrusive alternative to Adobe Reader, it now embodies everything that we hate about Adobe! They actually brag about "social network" features. Do these developers not live in the same reality as the rest of us?

I abandoned Foxit a while back but decided to try it again... bad decision. I remember when Foxit first came out and I'm jumped to it to get rid of the giant install print of Adobe Reader. Back when Foxit first came out it was advertised as a much smaller, simpler alternative with a footprint of just over 1 mb. Since then it has ballooned to being almost the same size as Adobe Reader... begging the question: why bother? The unfortunate part of this is that Adobe Reader is almost a required installation on all computers, and 99% of the average novice and intermediate computer users don't use any of the bloated features baked in, except to simply view a PDF.

I suppose if you need plenty features and maybe don't like Adobe Reader it's a nice alternative, but if you want a small, simple reader go with SumatraPDF.
