Foxit Reader is a lightweight and lightning quick utility for reading PDF files. PDF (Portable Document Format) is now one of the most ubiquitous document formats on the net. The problem is that Adobe Reader is both bulky and slow.

Foxit Reader on the other hand is light and quick. The proof is in the pudding for starters - compare Foxit Reader's installation file of just 12MB against Acrobat's more than 320MB and you can see why it opens documents in a snap. The key is that Foxit Reader doesn't have all those annoying splash-up screens, endless credits lists and plugins.

Foxit Reader's interface been designed with ease of use in mind. You have several toolbars available, which you can show or hide at your will and which give you access to all the available utilities: zoom, text selection, image snapshot, search tool, rotation or full screen view, among others. There is a small ad in the upper right corner, but you can deactivate it by going to the View menu and deselecting the Advertisement option.

One added bonus in Foxit Reader is that you can annotate PDF documents in several ways by highlighting text fragments, underlining them, strike them out or even add personal comments.
