Foxit Reader: a great replacement for Adobe Acrobat Reader

Download Squad has a post on the The 5 most annoying programs on your PC and I cannot disagree with their selections:

  1. Acrobat Reader
  2. iTunes
  3. Real Player
  4. Internet Explorer
  5. Microsoft Outlook

There’s no help for some of them, but they suggest Foxit Reader as a substitute for Adobe Acrobat Reader:

Acrobat reader does one thing poorly — read PDFs. To do this it needs to download updates at least twice a month. Acrobat’s other big feature is the ability to bring your system to a roaring halt while it boots up its massive amount of plugins and libraries. All this to display (wait for it) — a page.

FoxIt Reader is a much better solution. Download it, and you’ll no longer cringe each time your accidentally click on a PDF link while browsing the internet.

I gave it a try and it is fantastic as well as free unless you want some advanced features. Highly recommended.
