Foxit Reader

Foxit Reader 2.3 LogoHaving moaned about Adobe's "Acrobat" Reader last Sunday (CLICK), I thought I should point you in the direction of the alternative: Foxit Reader 2.3 (title link). If you must read grossly overweight bed-ridden pdf files, this is the program to use. It's a fraction of the size of Adobe's time-waster - 2.55Mb download size against 20Mb for Acrobat -, no trouble to install and displays pdf files like lightning. It was highly recommended to me by more than one person, and I've been using it - very occasionally - for a year. The latest version can handle Vista® (another bummer). I'm using my copy with Windows 98 SE. As you can tell, I'm not one for keeping up with the Joneses! What do they know?
