Foxit Reader – What Abobe Reader Should Have Been

Filed under: Software, Technology — inVINCEble @ 11:47 pm

Ever wonder why Adobe Reader takes so long to open? It seems like the software is loading everything possible on startup even when you are not opening any PDF files. I was very happy to find a software that is a self contain executable file that opens PDF files within a flash. It makes Adobe Reader look like a web page trying to open a 10MB file over a dialup connection. This time saving software is Foxit Reader. And as you may have guessed from reading my other blog entries, it’s free. If you are unfamiliar with setting up an executable file, then download the Installer file rather than the Zip Package. Enjoy!

  1. I completely agree with u! FoxIt is a gr8 software. ‘It makes Adobe Reader look like a web page trying to open a 10MB file over a dialup connection.’ That line from u was both funny and true. 😉
