  • Foxit Reader shown on PCWORLD.ca "Pick from the Pros: 3 Great Downloads", Foxit Reader was # 1 on the list of 3 Great Downloads.
    "…This little ray of sunshine is a PDF's best friend. It technically is a standalone application (meaning no install), but has been given a simple installer to place the files and give file associations. The main feature Foxit Reader has is speed, and it has lots of it, PDF's load in mere seconds! What's more, the memory (RAM) footprint of the application by itself is only 6-7MB making it ideal for older more memory restricted computers as well as laptops. It also supports forms and advanced editing/commenting tools, making it a surprisingly fully featured and well rounded PDF viewer. It will definitely make a believer out of you, and makes you wonder why Adobe doesn't hire these guys to make the reader for them. Anyone who reads PDF's should have this."

  • CNET gives Foxit Reader a rating of 5 out of 5 stars.
    "Foxit Reader is everything that Adobe Reader isn't: lightweight, effective, and streamlined. Foxit's main purpose is to read PDFs, but it also has annotation tools. The interface mimics Adobe's, so you won't have to change your reading habits. Text readability is nearly the same, and the 1.6MB Foxit starts surprisingly fast compared with Adobe. It's a nice touch that it opens PDFs from the Internet in their own Foxit window, instead of sucking resources from within the browser."
