    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 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.
